Keywords: Diffusion-Weighted Window Level, Acute Viral Encephalitis. Hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy
AbstractIntroduction: Estimation of stature plays an important role in forensic anthropometry as it helps in estimating the identity of an individual. Many studies for estimating the stature from measuring long bones, with derivation of formulas are there. The present study is an attempt to evaluate a possible correlation between stature of an individual and foot length in adults. Material and Methods: A sample of 100 medical students; 50 males and 50 females studying in Shri Ram Murti Smarak Institute of Medical Sciences was considered and measurements were taken for height and foot length. Result: It was found that both the parameters showed a correlation with each other. Mathematical formulae for estimating stature were developed through basic linear regression. Conclusion: It can be concluded that the present study has provided regression equations for stature and foot length of an individual that can be used for stature estimation.
