Accurate diagnosis is essential to ensure the most effective treatment for patients in dentistry. Among all diagnostic tools the X-ray examination is the method most often for diagnosing hard tissue changes in dental clinics. My research focuses on a variety of topics in the field of oral maxillofacial radiology from physical properties of digital radiographic systems, image processing methods to assessment of image quality and diagnostic performance of different image modalities.
