Sex determination with mandibular ramus – a retrospective study based on cone beam computer tomography

The medicolegal investigations are mainly based on the skeletal remains. Sex determination is mainly investigated using pelvis bone and skull. Mandible expresses univariate sexual dimorphism and hence play a role in sexual analysis. Mandible, being a dense compact bone is sturdy and can be well preserved comparing to other bones. Metric analysis on the radiographs is objective, accurate and easily reproducible and hence is the most used tool for skeleton sex determination. Aim and Objectives • To determine the effectiveness of mandibular ramus in sexual analysis • To measure, compare and evaluate the various observations of the Cone Beam Computed Tomography.
