  • The Pros And Cons Of Forensic Radiography

    Forensic radiography can be defined as a specialized area of medical imaging using radiological techniques to assist physicians and pathologists in matters related to the law. It can be used in anything from a double homicide case to an accidental drowning case. This new use of imaging helps to decrease the use of an invasive autopsy when it is not needed. However, it is very useful in cases involving a crime of some kind. It can be used for anything ranging from personal identification through dental radiographs, projections of bullet wounds, or showing postmortem cutting wounds on bones. The field is relatively new, but it is becoming more and more used in the field of forensics to help doctors determine cause of death and law enforcement to make a case against a criminal. Since the field is relatively new, forensic specialists are still trying to figure everything out to see what works and what doesn’t work and to see how it can be used and how effective it would be in solving crime. I will look at some of the aspects of forensic radiology that is being used today and their pros and cons of using that technology and how effective it is in solving crime. There are various methods of forensic imaging that is being used. There is PMCT (postmortem computed tomography), PMCT-A (postmortem computed tomography…
