Abstract: The gold standard in forensic medicine for establishing the cause and manner of death is still an autopsy. "To observe with own eyes" is the meaning of the word "autopsy". A corpse is thoroughly examined during an autopsy, recording all anatomical details, surface wounds, histological findings, and cultural studies. The phrases "virtual" and "autopsy" were combined to create the term "virtopsy". Virtopsy is the virtual dissection of the human body through radiographic imaging to analyze the internal aspects of the body to find the reason of death. Virtopsy may provide an efficient and more accurate view of the individual case through images. It is quickly acquiring significance in the forensics community. Forensic odontologists have recently employed this strategy, although it hasn't yet gained notoriety in the field.
