Forensic Radiology

Forensic Radiology

Forensic radiology is a recognized subspecialty interest within both forensic pathology and radiology.  Using a variety of different techniques (including X-rays / radiographs, CT scans and MRI scans), practitioners can identify disease, trauma, and unique features that can be used to identify individuals (both living and deceased).

Examples of common consultation areas:

Analysis of radiographs / X-rays

Postmortem Computed Tomography (PMCT)

Postmortem Magnetic Resonance (PMMR) Imaging
