The final segmentations of the individual teeth can now be used to find individual features of these teeth and output them collectively.

The Visual Healthcare Technologies Competence Center is working on solutions in this field that make it possible to automatically analyze the imaging data and present the extracted information to doctors. The fundamental first step for this is to automatically detect the contours of each tooth in the images. To accomplish this, the domain-specific knowledge of experts is reproduced by a statistical model that maps both the relative spatial relationships and the variance in shape of the teeth. Using deep learning, this model is initially placed on an image. Then the teeth in the image can be identified and their contours detected.
