Post-Mortem Computed Tomography (PMCT) is a useful method to investigate the cause of death and specific injury in trauma victim: to recognize foreign bodies (such as bullets in gunshot injuries, explosion debris etc.), for personal identification especially in the case of deep tissue alterations (carbonization, mass disaster), to identify injuries in traumatic deaths, as well as in drowning and in decomposed remains. In this work we analyze the different possible applications of this method on cases relating different fields of study: from forensic pathology, to forensic anthropology and paleopathology

Abstract

Post-Mortem Computed Tomography (PMCT) is a useful method to investigate the cause of death and specific injury in trauma victim: to recognize foreign bodies (such as bullets in gunshot injuries, explosion debris etc.), for personal identification especially in the case of deep tissue alterations (carbonization, mass disaster), to identify injuries in traumatic deaths, as well as in drowning and in decomposed remains. In this work we analyze the different possible applications of this method on cases relating different fields of study: from forensic pathology, to forensic anthropology and paleopathology
