Comparative radiologic identification with CT images of paranasal sinuses – Development of a standardized approach


Ruder, Thomas D; Brun, Cédric; Christensen, Angi M; Thali, Michael J; Gascho, Dominic; Schweitzer, Wolf; Hatch, Gary M (2016). Comparative radiologic identification with CT images of paranasal sinuses – Development of a standardized approach. Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, 7:1-9.

Abstract

The routine use of computed tomography (CT) to forensic medicine allows for new methods of radiologic identification. Here we present a method to reconstruct a standardized CT image of the head for comparative identification: CT images are reconstructed in MPR along skeletal anatomical landmarks of the inner ear and the orbit. The key advantage of working with standardized images for identification is that ante mortem and postmortem images can be reconstructed independently of one another.
