The role of Computed Tomography (CT) in resolving commingled remains: a 3-Dimensional analysis of different techniques

Samantha de Simone, Lucina Hackman (Supervisor)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Introduction: This study was developed from the growing need of techniques able to satisfy the standards of reliability, validity and objectivity required by forensic anthropologists to conduct their analyses in a sound scientific way. The pursuit of these principles can be even more challenging when dealing with commingled scenarios, with a high level of fragmentation of the remains and no visible relations between the elements.
Aims: The project explores the applicability of techniques developed for the resolution of commingled scenarios on bones acquired through an extraction and rendering process of whole-body Computed Tomography (CT) pre-existent scans, from a cadaveric population.
