Maxillofacial & Dental Radiology
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shown great potential in the field of dental radiology, where it can be used to analyze radiographic images and assist clinicians in diagnosing dental conditions.
AI algorithms can process large amounts of image data and identify subtle patterns and anomalies that may not be apparent to the human eye. The identification of objects in image and video data is a key area of machine learning, which makes head and neck radiology a suitable field for developing and applying AI in dentistry.
In orthopantomograms (OPTGs) and digital volume tomographs (DVTs), teeth can be detected, bone quality can be analyzed for osteoporosis, and osseous changes such as cysts and tumors can be detected. The segmentation of image material is a crucial part of these algorithms.
In addition to explicit questions, the recognition of incidental findings plays an elementary role, as they often have high general medical relevance.
