Description

This book is written for pathologists and trainees in forensic pathology and neuropathology who will have to conduct forensic neuropathology autopsies. It will provide them with the basic knowledge to conduct a thorough postmortem examination of the nervous system, describe and document the relevant pathological changes, and interpret these findings in a way that will be helpful in determining the cause and manner of death. Great importance will be placed on the objective and rigorous documentation of the pathological findings, because many of these autopsy reports will be re-examined in the context of legal inquiries and proceedings. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text, an image bank, and additional e-figures.


Key Features:-

  • Combination of solid text and extensive illustrations from a first-rate institution
  • Case-based approach makes the book more "real world" for the trainee and practitioner
