The observation of frontal sinus patterning is a well-established technique of personal identification in forensic anthropology. Variations in size, shape, symmetry, border outline, and the presence and number of septa and cells are compared using antemortem and postmortem radiographs. Traditionally, a standard frontal view is utilized. Computed tomography produces contiguous radiographic images of the cranium at predetermined increments. Multiple comparisons of the sinus configuration can… CONTINUE READING
