Age at death estimation using bone densitometry: testing the Fernández Castillo and López Ruiz method in two documented skeletal samples from Portugal.

Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the accuracy, precision and bias of a method for age at death estimation based in bone mineral density values assessed by dual X-ray absorptiometry at Ward's area (proximal femur). Estimated age at death was contrasted with documented age at death in two Portuguese reference samples (Coimbra Identified Skeletal Collection - CISC… (More)
