by Kumar, Amit

Abstract (Summary)
This paper addresses the need for a comprehensive database of dental radiographs that serves as an image repository for the dental students and faculty. The main purpose of this project is to the lay the foundation for the development of a dental digital-image library by mapping and describing the steps necessary for the development of such a library. This paper describes the various stages of the project, from gathering functional information, acquiring appropriate radiographic images, designing of the project plan and the development of a dynamic Web based front end for accessing the radiographs. The digital library of images could be used by the students as a quick reference tool and by the faculty as an instructional tool at the School of Dentistry, UNC at Chapel Hill.
