Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper proposes a detection method for carotid artery calcification in dental panoramic radiographs. The existence of the carotid artery calcification as an index for arteriosclerosis attracts a great deal of attention. The carotid artery calcification has brighter intensity compared to the neighborhood and its fact is utilized in the proposed method. To compensate the bad contrast of the dental panoramic radiographs, we also employ the fuzzy image contrast enhancement and algebraic image operator to the proposed method. From experimental results, the carotid artery calcification region can extract from several dental panoramic radiographs.
