The autopsy is not performed merely to establish the cause of death. It is also of enormous importance in helping define the
course of diseases and in evaluating the effectiveness of new therapies. A careful autopsy is the very best quality control instrument in the practice of medicine, and the autopsy X-ray or
postmortem xray plays an important part in the entire process. Forensic radiology becomes crucial in investigative autopsies when
x-rays can indicate whether there was unusual trauma to any part of the body, beyond what the external physical examination of a body can reveal.
Postmortem imaging in general and postmortem x-ray in particular have become so powerful and widespread that
many argue that the traditional autopsy is now rarely needed to determine the cause of death. National autopsy
data seem to clearly reflect this reality. In 1950 nearly half of all patients who died in hospitals were autopsied. Now the figure has dropped to about 20%.
These statistics in fact underscore the great importance of autopsy x-ray. In
many cases, the forensic radiography or postmortem x-ray is the component that sheds crucial light on the autopsy findings. Quite often traditional autopsy
methods indicate one cause of death, only for the autopsy x-rays to point to something else. Several studies have shown that in about 25% of autopsied
cases, the post-mortem findings do not agree with the major clinical diagnoses made while the patient was alive. Thus, without verification by autopsy and
postmortem imaging, the information on the death certificate - and, consequently, national disease statistics - are only informed guesses.
