This paper addresses the problem of developing an automated system for postmortem identification using dental records. The Automated Dental Identification System (ADIS) can be used by law enforcement agencies to locate missing persons using databases of dental x-rays. Currently, this search and identification process is carried out manually, which makes it(More)
The goal of forensic dentistry is to identify individuals based on their dental characteristics. In this paper, we introduce a system that uses some scenarios to fuse three matching techniques for identifying individuals based on their dental X-ray images. The system integrates a method for teeth segmentation, and three different methods for representing(More)
Dental biometrics deal with human identification from dental characteristics. In this paper, we present a new technique for identifying people based upon shapes and appearances of their teeth from dental X-ray radiographs. The new technique represents each tooth by a feature vector obtained from the forcefield energy function of the grayscale image of the(More)
The goal of forensic dentistry is to identify individuals based on their dental characteristics. In this paper we present a new matching technique for identifying missing, and wanted individuals from their dental X-ray records. Given a dental record, usually a postmortem (PM) radiograph, the proposed technique searches a database of ante mortem (AM)(More)
Law enforcement agencies have exploited biometrics for decades as key tools in forensic identification. With the evolution in information technology and the huge volume of cases that need to be investigated by forensic specialists, automating the process of forensic identification became inevitable. Postmortem (PM) identification, encountered in mass(More)
The goal of forensic dentistry is to identify individuals based on their dental characteristics. This chapter presents a system for automating that process by identifying people from dental X-ray images. Given a dental image of a postmortem (PM), the proposed system retrieves the best matches from an antemortem (AM) database. The system automatically(More)
