Post Mortem Technique Handbook, 2nd ed,
Michael T. Sheaff, Deborah J. Hopste.
Post Mortem Techniques Handbook 2e is a comprehensive practical guide to performing the modern post mortem. The text is well illustrated and presented by system. The book covers both the standard evisceration techniques and the many different dissection techniques that may be necessary in a variety of circumstances likely to be encountered by a practising pathologist. As the retained organ commission sets the international agenda, this book comes at an appropriate time with autopsy and audit being more and more important due to 30-40% of death certificates being wrong. This new and thoroughly revised edition will include guidelines output from the Royal College of Pathologists, and from the American College of Pathology. A must-have for all those who conduct post mortems, this book is aimed at pathologists in training, medical students, and mortuary technicians.
