The goal is to develop theory and computational methods for dental radiology with the focus on (1) detection and classification of anatomic structures and anomalies in dental radiographs, and (2) tomographic reconstruction for substantial reduction of radiation dose in dental imaging. The intention is that, as the result of the PhD project, one obtains significant advances to the state-of-the-art imaging methodology that are directly utilizable in the next generation dental imaging devices.

The selected PhD candidate will be employed by 3Shape Medical A/S while the PhD education will be enrolled by University of Copenhagen. The company supervisor will be Morten Boll and the university supervisor Sami S. Brandt. The role as an industrial PhD student implies that one part of the working time will be spent in the company and the other part in the university.
