[Determination in forensic medicine expertise of the age of victims, the accused and other persons].

Abstract

The authors suggest a new method for the assessment of the age of a subject, based on measurements of electrophysiologic parameters of human skin function. Examinations of 1313 subjects of both sexes, aged 15 to 75, helped derive a statistical model in the form of an equation, recommended for practical forensic medical evaluation. The regression coefficient standard error is equal to +/- 1.86 year, this permitting the estimation of the age of subjects as a certain time interval 3.72 years long.
