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.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
