L'angio-CT post-mortem : un nouvel outil diagnostique

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2011, vol. 7, no. 303, p. 1507-10
Abstract Post-mortem CT-angiography is a minimally invasive exam that allows the investigation of the vascular system in a very detailed way, impossible to realize during conventional autopsy. The research group for post-mortem angio-CT in Lausanne has developed a standardized protocol fora technique called "multi-phase post-mortem CT-angiography" that leads to an easy applicable performance of the exam and an increased diagnostic value. Additionally, new equipment including a perfusion device with single use sets as well as a special contrast agent for post-mortem investigations has been created. Using this technique, angio-CT permits to detect of the source of haemorrhages, vascular malformations, arteriosclerotic lesions as well as vascular occlusions and to visualize the vascular anatomy exactly.
