Journal of Forensic Odonto-Stomatology Vol.1 No 1 Jan. 1983.
Hope this info. helps. Thomas

Good afternoon ORADLISTers:
I have followed the discussion on the use of dental and hand/wrist
radiographs for age determination by immigration authorities. I have issued

Council meeting in Chicago (or as soon thereafter as possible).
Just a note to keep all of you up to date. The discussion has been most
