Abstract

A new age assessment technique based on proposed geometric mean transform by using dental X-Ray Imagery analysis has been proposed in this study. Topology segmentation and content-based shape analysis by using image transforms have been proposed to extract the feature vectors of dental imagery. Then, the accumulated feature vectors have been classi¤Éied to age classes by using Arti¤Éicial Neural Networks (ANN). The proposed technique has been evaluated in the standard images sourced from faculty of dentistry, USIM, Malaysia. The evaluation results indicate the robustness of the technique to different types of dental images available in the dataset.
