Automatic identification of landmarks in cephalometry is very important and useful for orthognathic surgery. A computerised automatic cephalometric analysis system (CACAS), based on image processing, is presented. For an original X-ray image, median filtering and histogram equalisation are used to improve image quality. The edge of an X-ray image is detected by a wavelet transform and Canny filter. Seventeen landmarks in cephalometry are successfully identified by knowledge-based edge tracing… CONTINUE READING
