Regression-models fitted using conditional independence to estimate pig fatness from magnetic-resonance images

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Regression models were used to predict whole-body fat percentage from as few as 13 cross-sectional magnetic resonance images from each of 12 pigs. Models were fit indirectly, by relating fat percentage to statistics averaged over all images from each pig, and relating these to individual images. Predictors were checked for robustness against errors in image locations.
