CRC Press, 22 nov. 2010 - 654 páginas

The benchmark first edition of Forensic Radiology, published in 1998, was a milestone in the forensic community — a bestseller throughout the world and a standard reference for practitioners and educators alike. Like its predecessor, Brogdon’s Forensic Radiology, Second Edition covers the entire scope of radiological applications in the forensic sciences, profiling current and anticipated uses of new modalities and techniques.

Features:

  • Provides an introduction to forensic radiology, including historical perspectives and definitions used in the field
  • Offers instruction on trial preparation and effective courtroom testimony
  • Demonstrates the use of forensic radiology in identification of the dead
  • Explores the use of radiology to help in gunshot and abuse cases and in nonviolent crimes
  • Contains an entirely new section on virtual imaging and virtopsy
  • Examines technological and safety issues

For radiologists, forensic scientists, forensic dentists, medical examiners, investigators, and attorneys

Over the past twelve years, the fields of forensic science and radiology have developed considerably, necessitating a revision of this critical work.

New Topics in this Edition include:

  • The radiologist as an expert witness
  • Modern cross-sectional imaging in anthropology
  • New approaches to radiology in mass casualty situations
  • The use of virtual imaging and virtopsy — new modalities developed and advanced since the publication of the last edition
  • Forensic and clinical usage of x-rays in body packing for drug smuggling
  • Imaging in the medical examiner’s facility and in the field
  • Radiology of special objects, antiquities, and mummies

Sobre el autor (2010)

Michael J. Thali has written many virtual autopsy papers (see www.virtopsy.com) and is editor of the book The Virtopsy Approach. He has been a professor of forensic medicine at the University of Bern, Switzerland since 2006, and at the time of finishing this book is the director of the Forensic Institute at the University of Bern.

Mark D. Viner is a Fellow of Cranfield University Forensic Institute, Chief Executive of the Inforce Foundation, and a Senior Manager at St. Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospitals. He has a long-held interest in forensic imaging and emergency planning, developed during almost 30 years of experience as radiographer and radiology manager in the United Kingdom.

B.G. Brogdon’s interest and experience in forensic radiology goes back more than 40 years to a time when he was radiologist-in- charge at the Division of Diagnostic Radiology at Johns Hopkins. His involvement in the field continued throughout his tenures as professor and Chair of the Departments of Radiology at the University of New Mexico and, later, at the University of South Alabama where he is now University Distinguished Professor Emeritus.
