Abstract

Now a days in Forensics, Radiology or Imaging plays a major role in identification of criminal and civil
proceedings. Why Radiology here means, it is making bit sensible that to analyze the bony structures like
skeletal remains and other body parts. The main aim of the manuscript is to unite the two disciplines in
one part majorly “Radiology and Forensics”. The forensic application of diagnostic medical radiology can
be applied in many fields; the prime target of evaluation is the osseous skeleton, but soft tissues which
may offer several key findings. Essential, methods consist of radiological methods such as conventional
radiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, but other techniques such as 2D and
3D surface scanning along with printing are also employed.
