This paper investigates several techniques to aid in the utilization of computer image processing methods to detect and quantify the severity of atrophic rhinitis in pigs. An algorithm for reducing the complexity of matrix multiplications from O(n3) to O(n2.81) is explored. A one-pixel-wide edge detection method is also studied. These techniques are considered for improving the accuracy, repeatability, and speed of existing detection and quantification methods.
