Abstract

Results of this study indicate that real-time ultrasound can be useful in predicting intramuscular fat (IMF) in the longissimuss muscle of live swine. The addition of tenth rib backfat measurements and sex as independent variables to IMF prediction equations increases prediction accuracy. Improvements in data collection and image analysis should further enhance prediction accuracy
