The Demand in Forensic Medicine to Assess the Age of Adolescents and Young Adults in Crime Procedures
Rötzscher, Klaus/Grundmann, Claus
Recent years have brought a worldwide increase in cross-border migration due to a globalised economy. Illegal migration of adolescents and young adults very often leads to crime and/or prostitution. This trend has triggered a growing demand in forensic medicine to assess the age of adolescents and young adults in crime procedures. The individuals examined are non-nationals without valid identification documents who do not know their age or are suspected of not giving their age correctly.

Keywords: forensic age estimation, skeletal age, forensic medicine, forensic odontology
