    Abstract

    Aim: The Present study was to determine whether the Foramen Magnum and Angular Fronto Nasal Junction were useful in sex determination in South Indian population using 3D Reconstruction of "Philips Brilliance 64-slice computer Tomography scan". Materials and methods: 54 patients with mean age of Male 45.66±18.84 and Female 46.66±14.56 were selected for this study. Foramen Magnum Anterior Posterior diameter and Transverse diameter were calculated from 3D volume Rendering Technique of Computer Tomography of head in millimetre. The Angular Fronto Nasal Junction was calculated by drawing a line parallel to the nasal bone and the frontal bone. Result: Mean Antero-posterior diameter of male is significantly higher than in female, 35.18±2.84>31.77±2.05 and transverse diameter is significantly higher in male than in female 29.53±2.76 >26.31±1.15. The value of p<0.01 is considered significant and the t value of Antero-posterior diameter is 4.82 and for transverse diameter is 5.13. The mean Angular Fronto Nasal Junction is significantly higher in male (116.59°±11.74) than in female (109.39°±13.48) with p vale of <0.042 and t value of 2.08.
