Aim: The aim of this study was to survey the root
canal morphology of mandibular incisor teeth in a Palestinian population using
radiographic approach. Materials and Methods: Five hundred and twenty two extracted mandibular incisor teeth were randomly
collected from Palestinian population. The teeth were radiographed from
a mesiodistal direction and examined for the presence of a second canal and
for the type of canal configuration. Results: All teeth had single root.
Three hundred and sixty nine teeth (70.7%) had one canal (type I Vertucci
classification). The rest (29.3%) had a second canal (type II and III). Conclusion: Mandibular central and lateral teeth were mostly found to have one root
and Type I canal system.
Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) is a technique in which images are indexed based on their visual contents and retrieving is only based upon these indexed images contents. Among the visual contents to describe the image details is shape. Shape of object, is considered as the most important distinguishable feature which living things can easily recognize, which is also a fact while this line is being written, and large efforts are currently underway in describing image contents by their shapes. Inspired by the core foundation of quantum mechanics, a new easy shape representation for content based image retrieval is proposed by borrowing the concept of quantum superposition into the basis of distance histogram. Results show better retrieval accuracy of the proposed method when compared with distance histogram.
