Abstract

Medical imaging in the field of forensic anthropology is increasingly being utilised to produce estimates of chronological age. The primary aim of this study is to develop adult age estimation standards for a Western Australian population based on the analysis of virtual reconstructions of the fourth right rib using the Phase method developed by lscan et al (1984b, 1985). Multiple linear regressions utilising Phase scores from three ribs produced models with comparable predictive accuracy to age estimation standards that already exist for a Western Australian population (±10.04 years for males and ±9.81 years for females).
