The difficult issue of age assessment on pedo-pornographic material.
Pitfalls at the root of facial assessment on photographs: a quantitative study of accuracy in positioning facial landmarks
TLDR
Results confirm that few anatomical points can be defined with the highest accuracy and show the importance of the preliminary investigation of reliability in positioning facial landmarks.
Feasibility of Contactless 3D Optical Measurement for the Analysis of Bone and Soft Tissue Lesions: New Technologies and Perspectives in Forensic Sciences
TLDR
Results confirm that 3D optical digitizing technology is a crucial tool in the immortalization of wound morphology in the medico‐legal context even on “difficult” substrates such as cut marks and saw marks on bone.
Can facial proportions taken from images be of use for ageing in cases of suspected child pornography? A pilot study
TLDR
The present study suggests that the metric assessment of the face may be used for age estimation on images, and more work needs to be done in order to verify the reliability of these findings on a large sample.
Decomposition and entomological colonization of charred bodies – a pilot study
TLDR
Forensic entomological approach for PMI estimation in burnt remains proved to be useful, although further studies on larger samples are needed.
Prevalence of ponticulus posticus in a Northern Italian orthodontic population: a lateral cephalometric study
TLDR
The current investigation provided the first data concerning the frequency of ponticulus posticus in Italy: further studies are needed to widen the sample, verify possible regional variations and improve the analysis by more advanced radiological examinations such as CT and cone beam CT scans.
Histological Determination of the Human Origin of Bone Fragments
TLDR
Results suggest that such regression equations should be limited only to bone fragments from long adult bones.
