Post-mortem imaging is increasingly used in forensic field in cases of natural deaths related to cardiovascular diseases, which represent the most common causes of death in developed countries. While radiological examination is generally considered to be a good complement for conventional autopsy, it was thought to have limited application in cardiovascular pathology. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of post-mortem multidetector coronary artery computed tomography in cases of sudden death in adults.

Abstract

Post-mortem imaging is increasingly used in forensic field in cases of natural deaths related to cardiovascular diseases, which represent the most common causes of death in developed countries. While radiological examination is generally considered to be a good complement for conventional autopsy, it was thought to have limited application in cardiovascular pathology. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of post-mortem multidetector coronary artery computed tomography in cases of sudden death in adults.
