OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to determine the sensitivity and specificity for typical abdominal injuries after major blunt trauma in postmortem multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIAL Thirty-four cases of accidental death underwent postmortem pre-autopsy MSCT and MRI. The imaging findings were correlated with the autopsy findings. RESULTS Sensitivity and specificity for liver injury in computed tomography (CT) alone were 53% and 84%. In MRI… CONTINUE READING
