  • Demonstrates the use of forensic radiology in identification of the dead
  • Explores the use of radiology to help in gunshot and abuse cases and in nonviolent crimes
  • Contains an entirely new section on virtual imaging and virtopsy
  • Examines technological and safety issues

For radiologists, forensic scientists, forensic dentists, medical examiners, investigators, and attorneys
