The potential use of the eye temperature decrease in determining the time of death in the early postmortem period: studies in pigs.

Abstract

The experiment was performed in pigs during which the postmortem body temperature was continuously measured. The study was focused on a period of time starting 0.5 hours after the animals' termination and consisted in computer recording of the cooling process of the eyeball (vitreous humor), orbit soft tissues, muscles, and the rectum. The experiment… (More)
