Abstract

Hyperbilirubinemia is a common problem in neonatal for contact with the healthcare facilities. Several methods have been used to determine the bilirubin concentration. However, it is not easy to find the healthcare with the instrument to detect bilirubin, mainly in rural area. This research was aimed to develop a simple method for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia based on the chest images captured using a smartphone. A total of 31 randomly selected neonatal were studied, with the parental inform consent. The chest images have been capture using smartphone camera with the standard color chart besides the neonatal. The captured images were then analyzed by extracting the color intensity using ImageJ software. The bilirubin concentration obtained using standard method from the hospital were then analyzed to show the association of the chest color intensity with the bilirubin concentration. The result showed a high correlation between the blue color intensity and the blood bilirubin with the regression line of y = −0.466x + 162.84 (R2 = 0.851). The result of this study indicated the smartphone camera images of neonatal chest could be used for a simple screening tool of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Further study could be performed for smartphone software development of the bilirubin prediction from the neonatal chest images.
