Objective and unbiased validation studies over a significant number of cases are required to get a more solid picture on craniofacial superimposition reliability. It will not be possible to compare the performance of existing and upcoming methods for craniofacial superimposition without a common forensic database available for the research community.(More)
Craniofacial superimposition has the potential to be used as an identification method when other traditional biological techniques are not applicable due to insufficient quality or absence of ante-mortem and post-mortem data. Despite having been used in many countries as a method of inclusion and exclusion for over a century it lacks standards. Thus, the(More)
Craniofacial Superimposition (CFS) involves the process of overlaying a skull with a number of ante-mortem images of an individual and the analysis of their morphological correspondence. The lack of unified working protocols and the absence of commonly accepted standards, led to contradictory consensus regarding its reliability. One of the more important(More)
Craniofacial superimposition involves the process of overlaying a skull with a number of ante-mortem images of an individual and the analysis of their morphological correspondence. Within the craniofacial superimposition process, the skull-face overlay stage focuses on achieving the best possible overlay of the skull and a single ante-mortem image of a(More)
Skull-face overlay is the most time-consuming and error-prone stage in craniofacial superimposition, an important skeleton-based forensic identification technique. This task focuses on achieving the best possible overlay of an unknown skull found and a single ante-mortem image of a candidate missing person. The process is influenced by some sources of(More)
Craniofacial superimposition is a forensic identification method involving the overlay of a skull over the available ante-mortem photographs of a candidate missing person face and the subsequent analysis of their anatomical correspondence. Within this process, the decision making stage focuses on determining the degree of support of being the same person or(More)
