Abstract

Background: occipital condyles are used. of gender discrimination in forensic anthropology and forensic medicine cases because it is one of the most preserved part in a skeletal system after death. Aim: To establish the gender wise reference valuesfor occipital condyles using 3D computer tomography images in young adults. Materials and Methods:Sampling was done byconvenience sampling method considering inclusion and exclusion criteria and a sample of204 was taken with 102 males&102 Female and length and width of occipital condyles were measured and statically analyzed. Result: the male condylar dimensions were grater and length of right occipital condyles were statically significant. Conclusion.occipital condyles showed the average performance in discriminating gender. Condyles can be usedfor gender discrimination in case of no other morphological indicator available.
