Background: Scientific works on the determination of somatic sex on the basis of the skull, conducted and published in our country and abroad, are analyzed and presented. In the process of cranioscopic research, craniometric and cranioscopic approaches and the existing traditional and modern methods used for their implementation were considered. In the process of studying the head, work is carried out to determine the somatic sex. This is one of the most important issues in forensic science, anthropological and archaeological research, the scientific study of general problems of human variability. Subjects and Methods: The study was conducted on the basis of MSKT imaging of the skull of 27 male and 20 female volunteers who had no congenital or acquired defects in the skull of an adult (over 18 years of age). The resulting images were examined by cranioscopic and craniometric methods using the IMA program. In cranioscopic studies, W.M. Krogman, G.Acsadi, J. Nemeskeri, and V.N. The advantages and disadvantages of Zvyagin methods are revealed. A. I. According to R. Martin and H. Welcker, who performed the craniometric method on the craniometric method of Bogdanov and a number of English craniologists, a comparative comparative analysis of the study was given in the modification. Results and Discussion: The authors note that the Center for Forensic Medicine has developed a craniological blank containing 79 types of head sizes. With this, it is possible to determine not only the sexual orientation of the head, but also the estimated age of the person. Conclusion: In conducting craniometric examinations in forensic practice. N. Zvyagin’s modification, which included 40 registered diagnostic signs described and registered, was further informative. Its efficiency was 93.5%.
