    Abstract

    Positive identification of human remains is often achieved by comparing antemortem and postmortem radiographs. Usually, radiographs contain a number of markers that can serve as reference for comparison, one of these markers is the trabecular bone pattern depicted in the roentgenograms. In the present case, densitometric analysis of the trabecular bone pattern was used as the sole means of identification. Later on, two other methods confirmed the original positive identification.
