Virtopsy in the Coming Era of Forensic Investigation: A Hope of Ray
Abstract: Though there are different types of autopsies, the most important and commonest one is the medic-legal autopsy which is conducted throughout the world mainly to determine the cause & manner of death. The gold standard method of doing it is the age-old practice of dissecting and opening all the major body cavities by giving multiple incisions. In contrast to this, in Virtopsy different radio-imaging techniques, computers & robotic techniques are used. It is more convenient and gives more accurate results in certain cases though it has certain limitations. In the future, this technique may replace the traditional autopsy technique as it provides a wide range and systemic examination of the whole body in less time duration. The present article is an overview of this latest technology in the field of Forensic Medicine & Science.
