Abstract

Four basic biological profile were useful for human identification including stature. The aim is to develop regressions for stature using ten metacarpals in Malay males. The samples were retrieved from Hospital Kuala Lumpur from PMCT images, which comprised 200 males from 20 to 53 years old. The parameters were lengths of ten metacarpals measured by Osirix, in which strong correlations with stature were evident. Single linear regressions were developed with good accuracy, where both true and estimated statures showed close values by paired t-test. It is concluded that regression equations are useful to estimate stature in Malay males.
