MISSING PERSON LINK®

AUTOMATIC DENTAL (CHART) IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (ADIS) USING DENTAL TREATMENT SIGNIFICANCE RANKING (DTSR)

Missing Person Link has developed a system of RANKING post mortem and ante mortem dental charts.
DTSR is a score which represents the significance of each post mortem chart against each antemortem chart calculated against the total pool (all qualifying charts).
This ranking takes into account primary and secondary coding.
The NCIC (FBI) dental chart matching (ranking) scores are derived from:
  1. Number of matches
  2. No matches
  3. No match
(Matches are determined by exact matches in restorations of each tooth) NCIC returns up to 35 dental chart 'matches' to the investigator, most of which fall outside of other matching criteria.

NCIC (FBI) has over 40,000 UNIDENTIFIED FOUND PERSON REPORTS, and over 80,000 MISSING PERSONS REPORTS submitted by Coroners/Medical Examiners and Law Enforcement. (All unmatched)
Most of these records contain DENTAL CHARTS

DTSR was instrumental in matching dental charts of 27 MIA servicemen from the Battle of TARAWA, November 1943, and remains buried as UNKNOWNS at the The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Hawaii.
A 'PROOF OF CONCEPT' for DTSR is demonstrated here (a program which searches a database of 500,000 randomly created dental chart records).

The American Board of Forensic Odontology distributes a program called WinID 3 (developed by Dr James McGivney of St Louis,MO).
Missing Person Link has developed a program called WinID Assistant which reads .mdb (MS Access) files created by WinID 3.
Using a variant of DTSR, WinID Assistant ranks all Post Mortem records against all Ante Mortem records, listing the top 3 ranked matches in color-coded tables.
The X-Ray images for each match can be displayed side by side for expert forensic examination.
WinID Assistant includes utilities for law enforcement investigating MISSING PERSON cases
