Essential Forensic Pathology Book Review:

A myriad of different scenarios await those entering the field of forensic pathology, ranging from gunshot wounds to asphyxiation to explosives to death from addiction. Essential Forensic Pathology: Core Studies and Exercises helps prepare pathologists in training by establishing what they must know about the most common death scenes they will encounter. The book begins by discussing the coaching objectives in medical education and follows with a description of the 15 different rotations of the forensic pathology resident. Using a consistent and concise format, the book describes the facility where the rotation takes place, the necessary skills, the laboratory equipment, and other components of the rotation. The main portion of the book presents forensic pathology essentials in the form of learning objectives—each delineated with a code: "M" for items students must know, and "S" for those they must do. This section begins by discussing the government’s role, describes medical examiner and coroner systems, and analyzes the academic discipline of forensic pathology. Next, the book focuses on hands-on elements of forensic pathology, with chapters on scene investigation, identification, and postmortem changes (signs of death). Objectives are also presented for various causes of death, including gunshot wounds, stab wounds, asphyxiation, sex-related death, and death from addiction. Additional chapters cover bombs and explosive devices, mental disease, epidemics, and issues related to forensic entomology. Each chapter contains a list of pertinent vocabulary and references for further study. By mastering the objectives contained in each chapter of this manual, forensic pathology students will be ready to pass certification exams and work confidently in the field.

Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology Book Review:

Through a set of unique case studies written by an international group of practicing forensic anthropologists, Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology: Bonified Skeletons prepares students and professionals for the diverse range of cases and challenges they will encounter in the field. Every forensic anthropology case is unique. Practitioners routinely face new challenges and unexpected outcomes. Courses and introductory texts generally address standard or ideal cases. In practice, however, forensic anthropologists must improvise frequently during forensic archaeological recoveries and laboratory analyses based on case circumstances. Most forensic anthropologists have encountered unconventional cases with surprising results. While these cases act as continuing education for practitioners—better preparing them for future encounters— such learning opportunities may be limited by the extent of personal experiences. This text exposes practitioners and students to a diverse array of case examples they may not otherwise encounter, sharing experiential knowledge and contributing to the advancement the field. Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology aims to both prepare aspiring forensic anthropologists and inform current practitioners. The cases are interesting and unique, detailing how specific challenges contribute to the body of forensic anthropological knowledge and practice. Key Features Full-color photographs illustrate the scenes and skeletal features "Lessons Learned" sections for each case study emphasize take-away points Thought-provoking "Discussion Questions" encourage readers to think critically and facilitate group discussions Actual case experiences by diverse array of forensic anthropologists who discuss innovative methods and unique challenges

Knight s Forensic Pathology Fourth Edition Book Review:

The fourth edition of Knight's Forensic Pathology continues to be the definitive international resource for those in training and in practice, covering all aspects of the medico-legal autopsy, including the cause and time of death, interpretation of wounds and every other facet of the investigation of a fatality. The contents are intended to lead the pathologist – and in some countries, the non-pathologist – through the procedures needed in the examination of a body found under obscure, suspicious or even criminal circumstances. Although police procedures and the habits of pathologists may vary from country to country, the philosophy and techniques presented in this book offer a guide to good practices that can be modified according to local circumstances. In this new edition the text has been thoroughly updated and is complemented by the addition of over 200 new colour illustrations. It maintains the praised tradition of clarity and readability established since Prof. Bernard Knight’s first edition was published in 1991, with an emphasis on the practical application of knowledge and research findings and the avoidance of over-interpretation.

Forensic and Clinical Forensic Autopsy Book Review:

Forensic and Clinical Forensic Autopsy: An Atlas and Handbook, Second Edition, provides a step-by-step, photo-assisted guide illustrating the complete autopsy, from pre- through post-autopsy procedures. All too often, forensic pathologists perform autopsies that are limited only to the body parts that are suspected, leading to biased and inaccurate results. A correct diagnosis for cause of death can only be reached by a strict and systematic examination of the whole body. The chapters of this book look at external cadaver examiner, organ removal methods, laboratory procedures, including recording and imaging techniques, microscopy applications, pediatric and fetal autopsies, and checking for genetic disease and DNA diagnosis. New chapters and sections to this edition cover histology and immunohistochemistry, in addition to the added coverage on forensic anthropology and molecular autopsy. Key Features: Includes new coverage of histology, immunohistochemistry, forensic anthropology, and molecular autopsy. Provides numerous case studies outlining the real-world best practice with over 550 full-color, detailed photographs illustrating concepts. Presents clear, step-by-step processes for completing autopsies consistently and systematically. Details laboratory procedures, Forensic Applications of Microscopy, and new imaging techniques relative to standardized pre- and post-autopsy procedures. Utilizes a series of forensic case studies to demonstrate each technique described and the approach used. From macroscopic to microscopic approaches, Forensic and Clinical Forensic Autopsy, Second Edition, provides detailed guidelines for performance of autopsy on every part of the human body. Using these standardized protocols with the proper knowledge, training, and experience, pathologists – and students of pathology and forensic pathology – can rely on this book to help them develop the skills needed to become experts in their field.
