Technical note: post mortem CT angiography of iliacofemoral arteries after cardiovascular surgery


Fröhlich Knaute, Damaris; Thali, Michael J; Gascho, Dominic; Schweitzer, Wolf (2017). Technical note: post mortem CT angiography of iliacofemoral arteries after cardiovascular surgery. Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, 9:40-43.

Abstract

This technical note details a variation of post mortem computed tomography angiography that usually uses femoral access. In this instance, the focus of the forensic investigation centered around a heavily calcified and surgically altered femoral region. So instead, a subclavian access to the aorta was employed. In order to preserve anatomical areas of interest, alternate access may increase evidential value of resulting imagery and autopsy results.
