In this paper, we have focused on developing a method and model to detect jaundice using non-invasive techniques. The yellow discoloration is used to measure bilirubin concentration for determining the level of jaundice in infants. Hyperbilirubinemia or Neonates Jaundice is commonly happened in the neonates or newborns due to rise in the of the amount of bilirubin concentration in the body. Current detection techniques, however, require clinical tests with blood samples or other particular equipments. As a result, newborns often depends on visual assessments of their skin color at home, which is known to be unpredictable. Therefore, to detect newborn jaundice non-invasively we are going to develop a technique based on yellow discoloration of the skin. Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, especially kernicterus; may be prevented by screening for neonatal jaundice at early stage. The proposed system is accurate in the diagnosis of neonatal jaundice, and can reduce the need for blood sampling.
