1 Digital Imaging in Dentistry Applications and Challenges
S. Brent Dove, DDS, MS University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, Texas

2 “A picture is worth a thousand words” “Knowledge is valuable”
“Don’t waste it”

3 Digital Dental Radiology
Intra-oral Panoramic Cephalometric Sinus and Skull Tomography CT MRI

4 Advantages of Digital Radiology
No Darkroom No Chemical Processing Lower Cost Per Image Instant Viewing of Images Less Radiation to Patient Image Processing and Analysis Transmission of Images for Consultation

Optical Biopsy Laser Computed Tomography 3D Ultrasound Laser Fluorescence Computer-based FOTI

27 Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD)
Observational Errors Misinterpretation Errors Integration of Data Errors Most Beneficial in Observational Errors

28 “CAD systems do not necessarily have to be better than the clinician, just help him not miss obvious lesions.”

Intra-oral Radiography Panoramic Radiography Cephalometric Radiography Tomography Intra-oral Photography Extra-oral Photography Histology & Surgical Microscopy

33 Interoperability ????????

34 The DICOM Standard The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Standard is a detailed specification that describes semantics and syntax for exchanging images and associated information. The standard applies to the operation of the interface which is used to transfer data in and out of an imaging device.

35 DICOM Workflow DICOM Display Workstation Storage, Query/Retrieve,
Study Component LiteBox Query/Retrieve Results Management DICOM Acquisition Media Exchange Print Management Query/Retrieve, Patient & Study DICOM Archive

36 What is DICOM Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine
Standard for communication of images and image related information between devices International in scope All biomedical imaging Voluntary standard

37 DICOM is Biomedcial Informatics
“the storage, retrieval, sharing, and optimal use of biomedical information, data, and knowledge for problem solving and decision making.” Edward Shortliffe “model formation, implementation of the model, application of implementaion to the real world, evaluation of the implementation” Titus Schleyer

38 DICOM, Informatics, Research
