... These include using data based on cadavers (Depster, 1955;Dempster and Gaughran, 1967;Clauser et al., 1969), dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (Durkin et al., 2002), magnetic resonance imaging (Martin et. al., 1989;Pearsall et al., 1994), computer tomography (Pearsall et al.,), gamma ray scanning (Casper et al., 1971), surface 3D scanning combined with computer aid design (Ma et al., 2011). ...
