Abstract

Herein, we report a comparison of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and autopsy in the evaluation of three cases of charred human bodies. Interestingly, MDCT identified several findings useful for forensic purposes, including traumatic injuries not related to the fire, relevant vital reaction signs and detection of foreign bodies. Our results, in addition to data gathered in previous studies, indicate that MDCT is an excellent tool for imaging in postmortem investigations and that it has great potential for the forensic documentation and examination of charred bodies.
