Abstract : The paper focuses on the major challenges faced during the processing of misaligned dental x-ray image. The objective of the paper is to discuss about the challenges faced during the root canal edge extraction from dental x-ray images, which forms a pre-requisite step prior to many other advanced automatic processing of x-ray images. For the edge extraction process of dental x-ray images, the effect of image processing algorithms is discussed and analyzed in this paper. Since edge extraction is the foremost step of all the major processing, the performance of the edge extraction stage is carried over to the later stages of processing. Some of the major areas that require processing dental x-ray images are root canal treatment, infection and other malignancy diagnosis.
