Identification of human skeletal remains an important step during mass disasters, from decayed and damaged dead bodies.[1] In forensic investigations and in medicolegal cases, identification of sex is an important aspect, followed by age determination. It depends on availability of human skeletal remains. When the entire skeleton is present, identification of age and sex can be done with accurately. However, in mass disasters, complete human skeletal remains cannot be available. Hence, it… Expand
Determination of sex from various measurements of mandibular ramus and mental foramen relations using digital panoramic imaging in a sample of Sohag governorate population.
The present study revealed no significant difference between right and left sides regarding all measured mandibular and mental foramen parameters in males and females, and the mean values of right andleft Condylar Ramus height and distance from the superior margin of themental foramen to the mandible (SM-IB) inferior margin were the correct predictors of both genders.

Estimating Biological Gender from Panoramic Dental X-Ray Images
An automated solution based on deep learning techniques using convolutional neural networks to identify the gender of a person with panoramic dental x-ray images of patients with European origin, with the images being taken by a wide range of orthopantomographs. Expand
Biological Gender Estimation from Panoramic Dental X-ray Images Based on Multiple Feature Fusion Model
A new automatic method to the gender estimation from panoramic dental X-ray images based on improved convolutional neural network with multiple feature fusion module and perturbation-based forward propagation approaches is proposed. Expand
Sex determination by using mandibular ramus: A digital radiographic study

Mandibular ramus: An indicator for sex determination - A digital radiographic study
This study on mandibular ramus measurements using orthopantomograph shows strong evidence suggesting that the ramus can be used for gender determination for forensic analysis. Expand
Mandibular Ramus: An Indicator for Sex in Fragmentary Mandible *
Abstract:  Mandible is the hardest and most durable bone of the skull exhibiting a high degree of sexual dimorphism. Especially ramus of mandible is subjected to greater stress than any other bone ofExpand
Dentofacial Radiography in Forensic Dentistry
In our civilization the face and hands are the only remnants of the original nakedness of man. As such, they are more accessible, more familiar sociobiologically, and have been extensively studied.Expand
Discriminant function sexing of the mandible of indigenous South Africans.
A comprehensive analysis of sexual dimorphism in the mandible of Black South Africans, incorporating individuals from a selection of the larger local population groupings is undertaken to produce a series of metrical standards for the determination of sex. Expand
An assessment of sex using the skull of black South Africans by discriminant function analysis.
This study uses traditional anthropometric measurements and equipment to address the question of sex determination from the crania and mandible of blacks and shows that traditional methods provide average accuracies that are comparable to those obtained using more complex techniques. Expand
Sexual dimorphism in the crania and mandibles of South African whites.
A total of 12 standard cranial and five mandibular measurements were taken from 44 male and 47 female skeletons of known sex and race from the Pretoria and Dart collections and subjected to SPSS discriminant function analysis. Expand
Comparison between the external gonial angle in panoramic radiographs and lateral cephalograms of adult patients with Class I malocclusion.
The external gonial angle is an important angle of the craniofacial complex. It is significant for the diagnosis of craniofacial disorders. Lateral cephalogram and orthopantomograms can be used toExpand
Accuracy of measurements of mandibular anatomy and prediction of asymmetry in panoramic radiographic images.
Panoramic radiographs should be used with caution in making absolute measurements or relative comparisons, even when internal fiducial calibration for image distortion of anatomy is used, measurements such as those assessing posterior mandibular facial symmetry may be unreliable. Expand
Morphological variation in great ape and modern human mandibles
This study forms a sound basis on which to explore mandibular variation in Neanderthals, early Homo sapiens and other more ancient fossil hominids. Expand
Comparison of Linear Dimensions and Angular Measurements on Panoramic Images Taken with Two Machines
Comparison of linear dimensions and angular measurements on panoramic images taken with two machines (Planmeca and Panoura) showed that angular measurements were more reliable than linear dimensions. Expand
