LAP Lambert Academic Publishing As humans age progresses, their cranial sutures undergo increasingly elaborate, changes becoming more complex and developing interdigitations through a process of growth and resorption of bone occurs. Although forensic science correlates obliteration of sutures with age, the morphologic characteristics of sutures are highly variable making age estimation difficult to determine. However, if suture obliteration is used in conjunction with other skeletal age indicators, the accuracy of age estimation increases.
