1 IDENTIFICATION Dr. AJEE KURUVILLA

2 Foot prints Study of impressions of foot Comparison of Dermatoglyphics Measurements of parts Stature = max foot length/ 0.15 Walking foot print Recorded by photographs / casts

3 AGE Physical development Teeth Ossification centres- appearance & fusion Age related changes

4 Age in intra uterine life From birth to 25 years More than 25 years

5 Age in intra uterine life Developing morphology Ossification centres appear Germination of teeth Haase’s rule If Crown heel length is <25 cm, age in months = square root of length If Crown heel length is >25 cm, age in months = length / 5

6 From birth to 25 years Physical features Teeth Ossification of bones

7 More than 25 years Physical features Teeth- Gustafson s method Changes in skeleton- closure of skull sutures

8 Gustafson s method Attrition Paradentosis Secondary dentine Root resorption Transparency of root Cementum apposition

9 Gustafson s method Age = (Total score) +/ Total score = A+P+S+R+T+C 0 = no change 1 = slight change 2 = obvious change 3 = maximum change

10 1. Which of the following is NOT a criterion used in Gustafson's method of assessing age from teeth a) Attrition b) Paradentosis c) Secondary dentine d) Primary dentine

12 3. According to Haase’s rule, the intra-uterine age of a foetus (up to a crown-heel length of 25cm) can be determined by a) Calculating the square root of the crown- heel length. b) Dividing the crown-heel length by 5. c) Multiplying the crown-heel length by 5. d) Doubling the crown-heel length.

13 4. Beyond a crown-heel length of 25cms, the age of foetus can be determined by a) Age = length/ 2 b) Age = (length) 2 c) Age = length/ 5 d) Age = length x 5

14 5.The minimum age for criminal responsibility according to the Indian Railways Act is a) More than 5 years b) More than 7 years c) More than 12 years d) More than 14 years

15 6. A girl is sent to reformatory school on being convicted of a criminal offence, if her age is less than a) 15 years b) 16 years c) 17 years d) 18 years
