Overview

This comprehensive collection of rigorous review articles covers both the scientific and practical aspects of using of lower extremity remains for human identification and trauma analysis. On the scientific side, the authors describe the biochemical events of decomposition, detail the use of radiology to facilitate identification and evaluate trauma, and explain principles of osteology, with an emphasis on the implications for skeletal anatomy for age, sex, race, and height estimation. On the practical side, they apply these approaches to trauma analysis and accident reconstruction, including slip-and-fall incidents, impact, traffic, and pediatric injuries, and considerations of foot and footprint identification. Specific case studies discuss the identification process using the foot and ankle and illuminate the forensic potential of feet, footwear, and barefoot impression evidence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"...a major step forward, mainly in the radiological, traumatological and biomechanical chapters...it will greatly enhance day to day work for experts in the specific field of forensic medicine." - International Journal of Legal Medicine

"...useful reference text for any agency involved in identification, accident reconstruction, and footprint identification." - Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal

"This is the latest book in the ever-growing Forensic Science and Medicine series, published by Humana under the overall editorship of Steve Karch. … It is broken down into several neat chapters … which are well written, well illustrated and complement more general texts efficiently. … this book could be a useful addition to the forensic pathologist’s library." (Dr S Kolar, American College of Physicians News, Spring, 2006)
