Purpose of this study was to examine the estrous cycle by an intravaginal image of a cow in a livestock barn using an inexpensive endoscope. Because the floor of barn was not clean due to straw and manure, it was difficult to move a large endoscope image processing device using casters. Recently, inexpensive endoscopes that can use mobile phones as image displays have been commercialized. However, it is hard to use for diagnosis of the estrous cycle from structural changes in blood vessels and tissues, since mobile phones do not have an image processing function. Therefore, we would like to introduce an image process method for intravaginal images obtained by inexpensive endoscope to make clear images of blood vessel of external uterine ostium and vaginal wall.
