The work is very well done and makes a significant contribution to the literature on the topic ! . [It] addresses, and is applicable to, the whole range of forensic autopsies. The printing and illustration quality is outstanding. --Joel Lichtenstein, M.D., University of Washington As the number of traditional autopsies continues to decline and as imaging technology becomes ever more sophisticated, radiological procedures, particularly multi-detector computed tomography, are being adapted for death investigation. These methods have demonstrated importance for detection and documentation of anatomic and pathologic alterations in the setting of un-natural death. ! The book is unusually well illustrated through correlation of photographs and radiological images of the highest quality. ! The book is certain to find extended use in training programs and daily death investigation and documentation. --William A. Murphy, Jr., M.D., Professor of Radiology and John S. Dunn, Sr. Distinguished Chair in Diagnostic Imaging, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center I believe that the book will be useful for practicing forensic pathologists. The numerous examples covering a wide variety of forensic cases ! illustrate the value of imaging techniques in medicolegal death investigation. --Dr. John Butts, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
