The mandible is the strongest bone of the skull, and it is commonly utilized in forensic anthropology for determination of sex from skeletal remains. It has been extensively studied by both metric and non-metric methods, but for this purpose an intact mandible is often required. This study was conducted in Indian population using discriminant function analysis to calculate the accuracy of two parameters each from ramus and condyle, for their use in sexing. Discriminant functions (1) and (2… CONTINUE READING
