Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This study aims to perform continuous measurements of the width of the cortical bone on dental panoramic radiographs for the identification of osteoporotic patients. This continuous measurement provides more accurate cortical width than the conventional one-point method. The mandibular cortical width below the mental foramen is measured by determining cortical boundaries and evaluating the distance between boundaries continuously. The estimate of the width is then obtained by extracting the most significant portion of the histogram of the measurements using the clustering algorithm. It is experimentally shown that the improved sensitivity and specificity provided more stable and significant diagnostic efficacy than the conventional one-point method.
