Very affordable post mortem CT angiography kit: Feasibility study using immersion pump and 3D printed parts


Schweitzer, Wolf; Enders, Markus; Thali, Michael J (2019). Very affordable post mortem CT angiography kit: Feasibility study using immersion pump and 3D printed parts. Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, 16:11-18.

Abstract

The high cost of commercial components and parts for post-mortem computed tomography angiography (PMCTA) has resulted in the development of a very low cost PMCTA-kit. It contains ubiquitous parts from hardware stores, and rapid prototyping derived models for 3D-printing. Design specifications have been tested and improved after finite-element modeling. A case study performed in using the final PMCTA kit parts for a PMCTA shows perfect vascular contrast without relevant leaks.
