About the Authors
  • This atlas describes the histologic changes relevant to the modern practice of forensic pathology. It guides the reader through the common questions that the forensic pathologist will need to answer in relation to the cause of death, such as: is this feature artifact or is this real? What does this signify? How old is this injury? The book focuses on key issues of forensic importance – e.g. sudden death, environmental deaths, injury timing, suspected child abuse and bioterrorism. The book is highly illustrated with color photographs to increase the understanding of changes related to disease, decomposition and artifact. All illustrations are also available on a CD-ROM packaged with the book. Ideal as a source of quick reference next to the microscope, this is essential reading for forensic pathologists, forensic pathology fellows, pathologists who consult in forensic cases, pathology residents, autopsy pathologists, coroners and forensic investigators.

    • Colour photographs of real forensic cases enable the forensic pathologist to accurately identify relevant morphologic changes due to natural disease, trauma and decomposition
    • Describes the dating of injuries including cutaneous and cerebral contusions, epidural and subdural hemorrhages, and rib fractures in infants
    • Describes the morphologic changes encountered in the determination of post-mortem interval in utero

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book is everything I ever dreamt of, and then some. The neuropathological images alone make the book worth buying, as they are more illustrative than the textbooks I know. Thank you very much! I am sure that I will look back at this book as the biggest leap I ever took in my training, and I'll make sure that the future trainees will benefit from that.' Asser H. Thomsen, MD
