The autopsy is the first part of the medical examiner's task. Fluid and tissues that are collected during the autopsy are used for toxicological and histopathological analysis. Serving as an excellent reference for anyone who examines tissue post-mortem, Color Atlas of Forensic Histopathology on CD-ROM provides an electronic version to instruct new forensic pathologists. This CD includes 700 photographs as well as illustrations on the pathology of drug abuse. Along with the text version, it comprehensively covers basic histomorphology, post-mortem changes, specific cell and organ findings, and forensic situations such as gunshot wounds, poisoning, asphyxia, heat-related injury, and drowning.
