Abstract

There is indispensable need of adding Cranio Facial Reconstruction (CFR) database using Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) of various populations for forensic facial reconstruction (FFR) purposes. The aim of this review paper is to give an exhaustive and critical review of the advantages of using CBCT over other 3D reconstruction techniques. Conferring facial soft tissue thickness (FSTT) population studies database of varied population till date defined within a common framework of facial identification. Extensive online searches were conducted and with all kinds of evidence exists an overview is provided. Further, the paper will also discuss the deficiencies in research database of FFR with CBCT in various populations and focus to create awareness of future requirements. Finally, we conclude this review by suggesting future directions of theneed to collect as much CFR data as possible using CBCT with set norms among different populations and subsequently performing validation to increase the practical relevance of CFR methods in crime-scene investigations.

Keywords: CBCT; Soft Tissue Thickness; Forensic Craniofacial Reconstruction.
