Superimposition comparisons have developed into a useful tool for assessing identification of unknown skeletal remains. These techniques fall into three general categories: Photographic, Video and Computer added. All three have been modified several times since their first appearance in the scientific literature, and several variations within all three categories are used for identification purposes today. All these methods indicate the mandatory use of skull for comparison. The use of superimposition comparisons continues to be valuable in forensic identification. Advanced technology is poised to take superimposition studies to a new level. Today, the issue of reliability in superimposition comparisons for making positive identification is commonly debated among researchers involved in superimposition analysis. Debate continues as to which technique provides the best indicator of identity. It is likely that each technique has unique advantages and disadvantages.
Online Journals are scholarly and peer reviewed journals. The journals provide forum and motivates scientists, researchers, academics, engineers, and practitioners in all aspects to share their professional and academic knowledge in the fields computing, engineering, humanities, economics, social sciences, management, medical science, and related disciplines. Online Journals also aims to reach a large number of readers worldwide with original and current research work completed on the vital issues of the above important disciplines. The journals permit all readers to read, view, download and print the full-text of all published articles without any subscription or restrictions.
