CT and MR imaging used in age estimation
Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be useful tools in assessment of age of an individual. This article presents a review of published studies using CT or MRI in dental age estimation. They were published between July 2004 and September 2016 investigating different types of teeth, methods and formulas for age estimation. Twenty-three articles were included. The different studies show good results, and it seems that a combination of different types of teeth, methods (depending on the degree of root formation) and cooperation between different disciplines in the same study gives a higher accuracy.
