Postmortem imaging, including postmortem computed tomography angiography, has become an integral tool in forensic investigation in recent years. A relatively new technique, multiphase postmortem computed tomography angiography, allows detailed visualization of the vascular system and makes it possible to evaluate the dynamic perfusion of aortic branches, including the coronary arteries. Here, we report a case of aortic dissection involving the ascending aorta (type A) with coronary and carotid malperfusion. This case illustrates the complementary use of many of the diagnostic tools that are now available in forensic practice, from imaging to conventional autopsy to pathologic techniques such as immunohistochemistry.
