Developing an X-ray Analysis App

Postby SteveJobs2016 » Tue Jul 20, 2021 11:22 am

Hi,
I am thinking about making an app that analyzes pictures and can take X-rays identifying an injury that is not visible to the naked eye. I was wondering what type of coding language I would use to start?

Are you exploring this for a school science project? What programming or app development experience do you have so far that might be helpful in thinking about what you can do for a project?

Yes,
this is for a school science project. I have experience with C++ and Javascript. I am also learning other languages such as Python currently but am not fluent in it.

Hi - I'm a mechanical engineer, not a software engineer, but I know a little bit of Python and C++ (but no Javascript). In general however, I would recommend that you look into "image processing," "image analysis," and "computer vision" for the different languages you know, and see what is available. For example, I know OpenCV is a popular open-source computer vision library, and it looks like it works with both Python and C++: https://opencv.org/.
