Forensic maxillofacial radiology encompasses the performance, interpretation, and reporting of radiological examinations and procedures connected to the courts and the law. Expertise of the maxillofacial radiologist proves invaluable in forensic consultations and medico legal investigations. Use of radiographs in routine and mass disaster identification has long been in effect, & its application in necro identification is efficient, swift, and relatively easy
Forensic maxillofacial radiology depended almost exclusively on the x-ray and the static image captured on the radiograph. The newer modalities, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are only gradually being added to the forensic arsenal.Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
