  • Description
  • Details

An indispensable resource for pathologists in training, as well as a useful refresher for practicing pathologists and autopsy technicians

This new and revised edition presents a clear and systematic approach to safe and effective modern autopsy practice. It begins by discussing issues of consent and mortuary design before going on to comprehensively cover external examination, evisceration, dissection of internal organs, and report writing.

In this edition, new chapters have been added on the radiological autopsy, religious attitudes to autopsy, and the implications of high-risk infections for autopsy practice. Specialist techniques are covered in depth, and chapters are devoted to complex issues including perinatal autopsies, maternal deaths, and neuropathological examinations.
