Age-related trends in the trabecular micro-architecture of the medial clavicle: Is it of use in forensic science?

Hannah McGivern, Charlene Greenwood, Nicholas Marquez-Grant, Elena F. Kranioti & Peter Zioupos
The mechanical and structural properties of bone are known to change significantly with age. Within forensic and archaeological investigations, the medial end of the clavicle is typically used for estimating the age-at-death of an unknown individual. Although, this region of the skeleton is of interest to forensic and clinical domains, alterations beyond the macro-scale have not been fully explored. For this study, non-destructive micro-computed tomography (µ-CT) was employed to characterise structural alterations to the cancellous...
