Abstract

Objectives: This study was conducted to establish if any correlation exists between individual’s chronological
age and lambdoid sutures closure status in mortals through modified reverse panoramic radiograph.
Materials and Methods: Total number of 140 subjects, 10 years and beyond were included in the study, and
divided into seven groups with an age interval of 5 years. Assessment of lambdoid suture closure was done
according to Frederic Rating Scale on modified reverse panoramic radiographs. Data obtained was subjected
to statistical analysis using Cramer’s V test.
Results: A significant correlation was observed between the age group and suture closure. Cramer’s test
gave value of 0.000, and was interpreted as a good correlation between the age and suture closure status
with a P value of <0.05
Conclusion: Lambdoid suture can be very effective and reliable practical tool for age assessment in
mortalsthrough modified reverse panoramic radiography (ectocranially)
