Abstract
Fishes are a widely used food material in the world. Recently about 4% of the fishes are infected with Kudoa thyrsites in Asian ocean. Kudoa thyrsites is a parasite that is found within the muscle fibers of fishes. The infected fishes can be a reason of food poisoning, which should be sorted out before distribution and consumption. Although Kudoa thyrsites is visible to the naked eye, it could be easily overlooked due to the micro-scale size and similar color with fish tissue. In addition, the visual inspection is labor intensive works resulting in loss of money and time. In this study, a portable microscopic camera was utilized to obtain images of raw fish slices. The optimized image processing techniques with polarized transmittance images provided reliable performance. The result shows that the portable microscopic imaging method can be used to detect parasites rapidly and non-destructively, which could be an alternative to manual inspections.
