Virtuelle Autopsie (Virtopsy) in der Forensik


Thali, Michael J (2011). Virtuelle Autopsie (Virtopsy) in der Forensik. Der Pathologe, 32 Suppl:292-295.

Abstract

The aim of "virtopsy" is to utilize modern imaging technology to optimize classical autopsy documentation. The benefits of virtopsy include examiner-independent, objective 3D documentation and its non-invasive approach. Virtopsy is an option in cases where autopsy is rejected by family members or for religious reasons. It is also suitable as a rapid identification and examination tool in large-scale disasters. Forensic findings can be presented to prosecutors and courts in 3D and without bloody images.

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.
