Description

This groundbreaking work emphasizes a practical, technical, and interpretive foundation for understanding the diagnostic use of modern imaging in forensic autopsy. It covers advanced imaging techniques, such as radiography, multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), angiography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The authors focus on images derived from MDCT and MRI that are likely to replace or limit conventional autopsy dissection. Following an introduction to basic concepts and a review of imaging techniques, chapters are organized by cause of death. The atlas-like presentation is supported by full text explanations that review relevant forensic principles.
