Many algorithms have been reported for automatic cephalometric landmark detection, but results were difficult to compare due to the different databases and landmarks.
As illustrated in Figure 4, the algorithm of automatic cephalometric landmark detection using decision tree regression voting (DTRV) in single scale consists of training and testing processes as a supervised learning algorithm.
This multiresolution coarse-to-fine strategy has greatly improved the accuracy of cephalometric landmark detection.
Experimental results of cephalometric landmark detection using database1 is shown in Table 4.
Furthermore, we conduct the comparison with the top two methods in 2015 ISBI Challenge of cephalometric landmark detection in terms of MRE, SD, and SDR as illustrated in Table 6.
Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm of automatic cephalometric landmark detection can achieve the MRE of less than 2 mm and the SD almost equal to that of manual marking.
Reproducibility of cephalometric landmarks on conventional film, hardcopy, and monitor-displayed images obtained by the storage phosphor technique.
the cephalometric landmarks were reliable and stable.
The Cephalometric landmarks were marked and all planes and angles were constructed.
