Abstract

ABSTRACT

Forensic maxillofacial radiology is a specialized area of medical imaging utilizing radiological techniques to assist physicians and pathologists in matters pertaining to the law. Radiology has been used extensively in conventional dental identification, anatomically based identification and identification using maxillofacial skeletal landmarks such as the frontal sinus. The purpose of this paper was to revisit the role of dentomaxillofacial radiography in forensic science where radiographic methods may be used to determine identity using the teeth, root structures and frontal sinuses. Newer modalities, such as com¬puted tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are gradually being added to the forensic arsenal.

Keywords: Forensic, maxillofacial,radiographs,reconstruction
