In keeping with the spirit of the first edition, the second edition of this book displays the autopsy procedure in a step-wise, start-to-finish fashion. While the autopsy itself has changed little over the last 100 years, the adjunct procedures—toxicology, radiology, and DNA analysis, among others—have changed greatly. Original chapters are fully updated and modified to reflect changes in the last 15 years. Additionally, two new chapters have been added on natural death and organ/tissue donation.
Approach to the Autopsy. Circumstantial and Medical History. External Examination: The Preliminary Examination. External Examination, Specific Forensic Injuries. Specific Body Areas. Internal Examination: Opening of Body Cavities and Initial Assessment. Organ and Tissue Removal. Individual Organ Examination. Head, Brain, Skull and Spinal Cord. Microscopic Examination. Postmortem Laboratory Analysis. Natural Death. Organ and Tissue Donation.
