  • ABSTRACT: Validation studies of the new DentalPrint© software were carried out with experimental bite marks in pigskin. The bite marks were digitally photographed according to the ABFO guidelines for evidence collection. Dental casts used in the experiment were scanned in 3D and 2D, and comparison overlays were generated using DentalPrint© and Adobe® Photoshop® software, respectively. Digitized photographs of the experimental bite marks and the biting edges obtained in the overlays were… CONTINUE READING
