Abstract

Height data is very important not only as an indicator of growth in low birth weight infants, newborn, infants (infants below), but also for early detection of disease such as dwarfism. In this paper, we consider height estimation by image processing that targets lying infants for the purpose of reducing the burden of infants, doctors and parents. Furthermore, we compare results of using a single image and multiple images obtained by moving pictures, and show the latter contributes to improvement.
