Report: U.K. officials should use non-invasive imaging for autopsies

Tools

The United Kingdom's National Health Service is being urged to replace traditional autopsies with non-invasive imaging alternatives. A report by the NHS Implementation Sub-Group of the Department of Health's Post Mortem, Forensic and Disaster Imaging Group recommends that the NHS use alternative techniques such as post-mortem CT and MRI. According to the report, the use of non-invasive imaging for autopsies could provide important humanitarian, religious and cultural benefits, and will satisfy an increasing demand by the general public for these alternatives. Announcement
