  • ABSTRACT: Bitemark determination in forensic odontology is commonly performed by comparing the morphology of the dentition of the suspect with life‐sized photographs of injury on the victim's skin using transparent overlays or computers. The purpose of this study is to investigate the suitability of two new different methods for identification of bitemarks by digital analysis. A sample of 50 volunteers was asked to make experimental bitemarks on the arms of each other. Stone study casts were… CONTINUE READING
