A comparison between neural network and other metric methods to determine sex from the upper femur in a modern French population.


Forensic anthropologists are frequently asked to assess partial or badly damaged skeletal remains. One such request led us to compare the predictive accuracy of different mathematical methods using four non-standard measurements of the proximal femur (trochanter-diaphysis distance (TD), greater-lesser trochanter distance (TT), greater trochanter width (TW… (More)
