Over the last decade, the field of forensic science has expanded enormously, with the rapid emergence of new autopsy and laboratory techniques, and the identification of many new markers for specific pathological conditions. In Forensic Pathology Reviews, Volume 1, leading national and international forensic pathologists provide cutting-edge reviews of many of the key recent medical and legal advances in the field. These critical surveys concentrate on common pathological entities likely to be encountered in daily forensic routine, as well as on specific pathological conditions rarely seen in the autopsy room. Complementing rather than replacing the classic textbooks in forensic pathology, the authors explore new avenues for analyzing the pathology of burned bodies, traumatic brain injury, death by drug abuse, sudden cardiac death, sudden infant death and neonaticide, and fatalities resulting from kicking and trampling. Other areas of interest include accidental autoerotic deaths, hypothermia fatalities, injuries from resuscitation procedures, the interpretation of alcohol levels in different specimens, and the forensic differential diagnosis and interpretation of iliopsoas muscle hemorrhage in the light of autopsy. Where appropriate, the authors also discuss the proper procedures for giving expert testimony in a death investigation. A comprehensive review of the international literature that is otherwise difficult to assimilate is given for each chapter.
Cutting-edge and concise, Forensic Pathology Reviews, Volume 1 offers forensic investigators a rich demonstration of how the latest medical and scientific advances are being applied to solve current problems of high interest to forensic pathologists today.
