The Hospital Autopsy
By

Rating
Now in full colour, this new and revised edition of The Hospital Autopsy presents a clear and systematic approach to safe and effective modern autopsy practice for pathologists. It begins by discussing issues such as legislation governing autopsies, religious attitudes and ensuring safety, before covering the procedures of external examination, evisceration, dissection of internal organs and report writing. Six new chapters have been added and contemporary specialist techniques, such as near virtual autopsy, are covered in depth, with chapters devoted to complex issues including perinatal autopsies, maternal deaths and autopsies where the cause of death is unascertained. The Hospital Autopsy is an indispensable resource for pathologists in training, as well as a concise reference for practicing pathologists and autopsy technicians.

Reviews

"The Hospital Autopsy is greatly needed at a time when many junior pathologists are struggling to gain adequate autopsy teaching and experience...it is an essential text for reference in the post-mortem suite, as well as being useful for the examination" -Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists "Nine years on from the last edition there has been considerable expansion... Significant improvements include the use of colour for photographs, diagrams, sub-headings and summary boxes... It is... essential reading for the dwindling band of autopsy pathologists." -ACP News
