Confirmation of Human Identification Using Computerized Tomography (CT)
Computerized tomography (CT) was used to assist in confirming a human identification. The potential utility of comparing lateral scout views and lateral skull X-rays for identification purposes is proposed. Antemortem CT scans with scout views of the human skull are useful for comparison with postmortem radiographs and should be considered as a potential modality for establishing definitive identification when antemortem radiographs are not available.
