Abstract
The number of medical autopsies has declined in recent decades due to the development of imaging techniques and some risks linked to autopsies. However, the contribution of autopsy is diagnostically significant, even better than new technologies currently available. It is thus a good indicator of quality, but also a training tool, and has a significant impact in the grieving process. At the CHUV, under the leadership of Pathology Department, institutional projects have been implemented in order to increase the number of autopsies, including a pre- and post-graduate training and systematic request for autopsy, with significant gain for clinicians and pathologists, but also for families who get systematic and customized return results.
