Three-dimensional (3D) craniofacial reconstruction can be a useful tool in the identification of an unknown body. The progress in computer science and the improvement of medical imaging technologies during recent years has had a significant impact on this domain. New facial soft tissue depth data have been obtained. New guidelines for facial feature properties such as nose projection, eye protrusion or mouth width, have been suggested, but also older theories and "rules of thumbs" have been critically evaluated based on digital technology. New fast, flexible and objective 3D reconstruction computer-based programs are in full development. Employing the newer technologies and permanently evaluating the obtained results will hopefully lead to more accurate reconstructions.
