This book is written for pathologists and trainees in forensic pathology and neuropathology who will have to conduct forensic neuropathology autopsies.
Essential Forensic Neuropathology provides pathologists and trainees with the basic knowledge to conduct a thorough postmortem examination of the nervous system; describe and document the relevant pathological changes; and interpret these findings in a way that is helpful in determining the cause and manner of death. Great importance is placed on the objective and rigorous documentation of the pathological findings, because many of these autopsy reports will be re-examined in the context of legal inquiries and proceedings.
