Paper Abstract

Nowadays, dental CT images play more and more important roles in oral clinical applications. Our research is important particularly in the field of dentistry. We are using non-dynamic and dynamic CT image for our research. We are creating our database of bone, blood vessels and muscles of head and neck. This database contains easy case and difficult case of head and neck's bone, blood vessels and muscle. There are lots of difficult cases in our database. Teeth separation and condylar process separation is difficult case. External carotid artery has many branches and they are attached with vain so it is difficult to separate. All muscle threshold value is same and they are attaching with each other so muscle separation is very difficult. These databases also contain different age's patients. For this reason our database becomes an important tool for dental students and also important assets for diagnosis. After completion our database we can link it with other dental application.
