This paper presents a procedure for virtual autopsies based on interactive 3D visualizations of large scale, high resolution data from CT-scans of human cadavers. The procedure is described using examples from forensic medicine and the added value and future potential of virtual autopsies is shown from a medical and forensic perspective. Based on the(More)

In Australia, there were 44 cases (M:F = 42:2) with the majority of victims aged >30 years (77%)-a yearly national(More)

A rodent model was used to evaluate the association between hypothermia and basal vacuolization in renal tubular epithelial cells. 28 Sprague Dawley rats were anaesthetized in non-stressful conditions and placed two at a time into a cooling chamber. Body core temperatures dropped to a minimum of 7-10 °C, causing death under anaesthesia at times varying from(More)
Case files from Forensic Science South Australia and the Swedish National Forensic Database were reviewed over a 6-year period from 2006 to 2011 for cases where hypothermia either caused, or significantly contributed to, death. Data were analyzed for age, sex, time of year/season, place of discovery, circumstances of death, and underlying medical(More)
