    Introduction: The determination of sex and the estimation of stature from bones play an important role in identifying unknown bodies, parts of bodies, or skeletal remains. Significant levels of sexual dimorphism are also seen in the skull and the remainder of the post-cranial skeleton region. Recent researchers suggest that using femoral measurements alone can determine the sex about 80–85%. However, there are very few startups on the determination of sex from radius bone. The study aimed on determining the sex of an individual by inspecting various aspects of the radius of an individual. Methods and Materials: Radius bone, thread, and scale are required. Result: Males are susceptible to have a greater length and prominent features of radius bone compared to that of females, and this can be revealed on measuring their mid-shaft diameter and comparing with standard level. Conclusion: The sex of an individual is determined by examining the radius bone.
