Radiological determination of individual identity may be presumptive upon demonstration of preexisting injuries, illness, or congenital and/or developmental peculiarities (Figure 3-1). Positive radiological identification requires direct comparison of ante-mortem and post-mortem images of the body or its parts (Figure 3-2). The emergence of multiple radiological imaging modalities in recent years has complicated rather than simplified this comparison. This is because, for the most part, the newer modalities display body parts in sectional and planar images quite different from the routine frontal and lateral views typifying most conventional roentgenograms.
