Hello, fellow dentists? As a part of my ongoing virtual dentist project,
I have been developing an AI to read dental x-ray images, and this is what it does! With TensorFlow, a machine learning software
library from Google, I am building and training a neural network to read dental x-ray radiographs
and detect normal and abnormal findings. Currently, the trained neural network model can
recognize a limited number of normal anatomical landmarks such as TMJ, central incisors and teeth with crowns from bitewing and panoramic radiographs. My ultimate goal is to develop an AI that
can recognize abnormal findings such as dental caries and other benign or malignant hard
tissue lesions in the jaw from the x-ray radiographs. Thanks for watching!
