CT Evaluation

‘The Evaluation of Computerised Tomography for its use in Forensic Pathological Investigations’


Supervisors: Professor G Rutty Home Office registered Forensic Pathologist and Dr B Morgan Consultant Radiologist.


This project will:

• Address the potential use of CT scanning in forensic practice.
• Review the literature and critically assess the use of CT for the purposes of Coroner’s inquiries i.e. who the person was, when they died, where they died and how they died.
• Assess whether CT can be used as an adjunct to forensic autopsy practice or under what circumstances it could act as a replacement to invasive autopsy examinations.
• Consider the use of static CT technology as well as mobile CT technology, particularly for the use of mass fatality investigations, temporary mortuaries and its use within so called “CBRN” events (chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear).
