CT studies enable non-invasive analyses of anthropological remains. Serial CT data permit 3D morphometry and computer-assisted reconstruction of skulls, jaws and bones. A qualitative and quantitative analysis of bone structures was performed using a new CT-software (DENTAL CT). The evaluation on skulls and dental remains included especially data from the thickness of jawbone, the relative location of dental roots, size and course of anatomical structures (maxillary sinus, alveolar canal, postorbital and ear region). Dental CTstudies provide a broad perspective in primatology, palaeoanthropology, palaeopathology and other fields.
