Sanjay Pande MB [2] | Ojus T | Dr. Rakesh Pande MS | Dr. Nagabhushan D | Shashank KR


Abstract: The technology advancement has provided new opportunities to work in different disciplines of science. In the present paper, the problem of an identifying an individual is taken-up. The identity of an individual is required for many issues. Thus, the process of identifying an individual has been an open-end problem for all the fraternities. In the present work one such problem of identification of individual has been taken. Palatal rugae are irregular, asymmetric ridges of the mucous membrane extending laterally from the incisive papilla and the anterior part of the palatal raphe. The location of palatal rugae inside the oral cavity confers them with stability even when exposed to high temperatures or trauma. Their resistance to trauma and their apparent unique appearance has suggested there is a tool for forensic identification. Further, an Image processing tool has been used in the present work to create and distinguish between different samples. The process of data samples has been taken in collaboration with Dental experts.
