A fatal case of a ruptured cerebral aneurysm detected by postmortem computed tomography angiography using a new contrast-medium solution


Stamou, Stamatios; Gascho, Dominic; Eggert, Sebastian; Berger, Florian; Thali, Michael J; Flach, Patricia M (2016). A fatal case of a ruptured cerebral aneurysm detected by postmortem computed tomography angiography using a new contrast-medium solution. American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology, 37(4):227-230.

Abstract

Forensic autopsy is still the criterion standard in legal investigations. Currently, notable transformation is occurring because postmortem imaging is being increasingly endorsed. This article highlights the effectiveness of postmortem computed tomography angiography by using a new contrast medium mixture as a solitary tool to define the cause and manner of death in a ruptured cerebral aneurysm case. Based on the imaging results, autopsy was not mandated and the case was closed.
