  1. Centralized automated quality assurance for large scale health care systems : a pilot method for some aspects of dental radiography.

    Article - En anglais

    President Clinton's Health Security Act proposes the formation of large scale health plans with improved quality assurance.

    Dental radiography consumes 4% ($1.2 billion in 1990) of total dental expenditure yet regular systematic office quality assurance is not performed.

    A pilot automated method is described for assessing density of exposed film and fogging of unexposed processed film.

    A workstation and camera were used to input intraoral radiographs.

    Test images were produced from a phantom jaw with increasing exposure times.

    Two radiologists subjectively classified the images as too light, acceptable, or too dark.

    A computer program automatically classified global grey level histograms from the test images as too light, acceptable, or too dark.
