Abstract:

In recent years the use of post-mortem imaging techniques has increased significantly, particularly the use of post-mortem CT (PMCT) for both coronial and home office cases within the UK. In some jurisdictions PMCT has almost completely replaced the traditional post-mortem examination for coronial cases, although it is currently only used as an adjunct for all home office post-mortem examinations. This presentation will look at the use of CT in a dedicated NHS PMCT unit, including the set-up of the department, scans undertaken and case studies.
