In recent years, modern techniques of medical imaging such as MDCT (multidetector-computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) have pioneered post mortem (pm) investigations, especially in forensic medicine. Particularly pm angiography permits investigating the vascular system in a way which is not possible by performing only conventional autopsy. Beside these radiological methods, other modem visualizing techniques like the three dimensional (3D) surface scan have been implemented in order perform reconstructions of complex cases. By the use of pm imaging techniques, more objective and accurate documentations can be realized that permit an increase of quality in forensic investigations.
