Age Classification in Forensic Medicine Using Machine Learning Techniques
TLDR
This research presents a novel and scalable approach to estimating the precision of the response of the immune system to infectious disease outbreaks in the context of forensic medicine.
Comparison of the third molar maturity index (I3M) between left and right lower third molars to assess the age of majority: a multi-ethnic study sample
TLDR
The results highlighted that both I3ML and I3MR are reliable indicators for assessing the legal age of 18 years old in those jurisdictions where this legal threshold has been set as the age of majority.
A Review on Automated Bone Age Measurement Based on Dental OPG Images
TLDR
This article explores the automated techniques used in the previous literature and highlights the challenges and issues, and proposes a framework based on the gap in the literature reviewed, to find the most suitable automated method for BAM.
Forensic Validity of the Third Molar Maturity Index (I3M) for Age Estimation in a Russian Population
TLDR
The cut-off value of I3M is statistically robust and thus valid for forensic application in a Russian population to determine whether or not a subject has reached 18 years of age and is novel as it is reliable and easily reproducible, thus ensuring a universal way of comparing the results obtained among many populations.

Biological vs Legal Age of Living Individuals
TLDR
The physician should use all the available evidence, including multiple maturity indicators, and must approach each case with caution, because the poor correlation between maturity and chronological age represents a fundamental limitation to age-determination practices in forensic settings.
Bone Growth Estimation Using Radiology (Greulich–Pyle and Tanner–Whitehouse Methods)
TLDR
Estimation of skeletal maturity may be less predictable with hand and wrist radiography in the very young and variable during adolescent growth, and additional skeletal radiographic sites may improve timing in the management of skeletal disorders.
Dental Age Estimation
TLDR
This chapter focuses on different methods used in dental age estimation techniques in children, subadults, and adults and guidelines for preparing dental estimation reports for the medicolegal process.
