    Abstract / Zusammenfassung

    Television image analysis offers a method for the automatic determination of surface areas. The method was tested for its suitability for use in the quantitative estimation of raw and gelatinized collagen, elastin and bone particles of histological sections of meat and meat products. Five different experiments show that television image analysis correlates closely to the results obtained using the point count technique (correlation coefficient r > 0.981), the bone content determined by chemical means (r > 0.97) as well as the experiments using added collagen (r = 0.988) and elastin (r = 0.854). It can be concluded that the automatic image analysis is an adequate alternative to chemical analysis.
