OBJECTIVES An eroded inferior cortex of the mandible detected on dental panoramic radiographs is useful for identifying post-menopausal women with low skeletal bone mineral density (BMD) or osteoporosis. The purposes of this study were to develop a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system that automatically determines cortical erosion of the mandible on dental panoramic radiographs and to assess the validation of this CAD system. METHODS A CAD system was developed based on mathematical… CONTINUE READING
