RCR/RCPath statement on standards for medico-legal post-mortem cross-sectional imaging in adults
A joint statement from The Royal College of Radiologists and the Royal College of Pathologists on standards for medico-legal post-mortem cross-sectional imaging in adults.
The document sets out:
- The scope and limitations of cross-sectional post-mortem imaging as an alternative to an autopsy and as a means of reliably establishing a cause of death in adults
- Standards that should be in place when such a service is being commissioned or an examination is being authorised by a legal authority
- Priorities for further work in development of this form of post-mortem examination.
