Postmortem Imaging: A Transdisciplinary Approach for Objectified Knowledge
Title of the book
Atlas of Postmortem Angiography
Springer International Publishing
The development of postmortem imaging and its introduction into forensic medicine, especially modern cross-sectional imaging techniques, have led to the emergence of new specialties and subspecialties. As with other transdisciplinary projects, the need to become familiar with some characteristics of the respective other disciplines is both a challenge and an opportunity. The forensic pathologist has to learn to deal with the possibility of investigating the inside of a body without opening it, the radiologist has to learn to manage forensic questions and postmortem artifacts, and the radiographer has to learn how to cope with dead bodies instead of living patients and adapt examination protocols. This chapter will give the reader the perspective of each of these three practitioners.
