CAD (Computer Aided Diagnosis) system that has 3-D viewer function to display the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) image has been developed in recent years. Now, the function of CAD system for artificial implant to which development is advanced includes the removal of artifact in the input DICOM image, region extraction of bone, major vessel, and nerve and mounting of function to presume place where implant is stricken. However, it is still required a software with high performance because of taking the processing time to do a series of operation before simulating by the strike of the implant on the operation on a clinical site. In this paper, we propose the function to extract the area of bone separately for teeth and mandibles automatically as addition to the system that can do a series of operation before simulating by the strike of the implant. In addition, we proposed also the function to extract each tooth separately. The main aim of this paper is to develop the integrative system for the dental screening that can be operated in a personal computer.
