Forensic pathology reviews


Forensic science cannot quantify the pain of torture victims, or the degree to which someone’s human rights are violated by ethnic cleansing, admits Tsokos (legal medicine, U. of Hamburg, Germany), but it can find, analyze and interpret physical evidence that such crimes were committed. Here specialists in various fields from a wide range of countries provide current information and insight into forensic neuropathology, pathophysiology, odontology, and radiology; death from environmental and natural causes; taphonomy; a postmortem diagnosis of anaphylaxis; the medico-legal evaluation of fatal pulmonary thromboembolism; trends of suicide in the US during the 20th century, and iatrogenic injury.
