Somasish Ghosal, Subhankar Kumar Sarkar, Soumeek Chowdhuri

Abstract


Radio-diagnosis is an established field in clinical practice including postmortem Computed Tomography (CT) scans for better evaluation on the cause of death. Applications of micro CT scan on age-specific diagnostic marker in immature insects as well as volumetric estimation of maggot biomass from deep tissue for precise calculation of minimum Postmortem interval (PMI) is an upcoming challenging field. Proper interpretation of images with data refinements are presently a new forensic research field with advantages on saving of time and evidences properly.
