For anthropological and medicolegal reasons, sex is usually identified from the human skeleton. The hip bone is normally used and the ischiopubic index is one of the best parameters used for determination of sex. This study was carried out to determine the pubic length, ischial length and ischiopubic index. Anteroposterior radiographs and CT Scan of adult pelvis (age range, 18-75 years) shall be selected and evaluated
