    Abstract

    This study presents a method for estimating the age at death from the quantitation of roetgenologic features of X-ray films of chest plates obtained during routine autopsies. Multiple linear regression analysis allows estimation of coefficients of regression of features on known age-at-death individuals. The regression equation can be used in turn for age estimation of an unknown age-at-death individual. The accuracy of age estimation is about ±8.4 years (standard error) which is in the range of previously published macroscopic methods, though the present method is much faster and simpler.
