In the framewort of the quantitative histologic evaluation of poultry products, the size and the number of bone fragments have been determined using the image analysis. Bone fragments were identified by their colour and analysed automatically. The samples contained 135 to 2167 bone particles the length of which varied from 5 to 2088 μm. Comparing products of the same kind, we found differences in the contents of bone fragments; this fact was possibly due to inadequate observance of the technological procedure by some producers.Keywords:
