Shadow Positioning Technique: A Method for Postmortem Identification
Radiology is increasingly being used as a means of postmortem identification. We have devised a shadow positioning technique by which a postmortem radiograph of a skeletal part can exactly duplicate an antemortem radiograph, thus, facilitating identification by comparison of the antemortem and postmortem radiographs. The antemortem radiograph can be of any skeletal part and taken in any position.
