Overview

New York City has the largest medical examiner’s office in the United States, and the Brooklyn division is the busiest of the five boroughs. Charles A. Catanese received his Forensic Pathology fellowship training in New York, and then worked full time as a Medical Examiner in the Brooklyn office for more than 10 years. He has personally performed more than 4000 autopsies, including over 400 homicides. Dr. Catanese has worked through several disasters, including TWA Flight 800, AA Flight 587, and more than nine months on the World Trade Center fatalities. He is currently the Chief Medical Examiner of Orange County, New York. Drawing on his wealth of knowledge and experience in solving some of the most difficult cases a forensic examiner could encounter, he assembles hundreds of images from his own work experience to present the Color Atlas of Forensic Medicine and Pathology.

Featuring twice the number of images as any other forensic pathology atlas, the book is filled with high-resolution photos that demonstrate postmortem changes of the human body and the different types of patterns produced in deaths caused by:

  • Natural causes
  • Diagnostic or therapeutic procedures
  • Substance abuse
  • Poisoning
  • Child abuse
  • Firearms
  • Blunt instruments
  • Sharp instruments
  • Burns
  • Asphyxia

This easy-to-read atlas, created for medical and non-medical personnel, covers basic and advanced forensic concepts that relate to all manners of deaths. The carefully worded, unambiguous text describing each photo and the side-by-side comparisons of similar, yet different, pathologies make this remarkable atlas a powerful teaching tool for all those who must confront and solve the mystery of human demise. A fully searchable DVD version is also available.

From the Publisher
The photographs are very clear and informative. In all there are about 1500 pictures covering the whole panorama of forensic pathology ...forensic pathologists, especially the younger ones at the start of their careers ... can benefit from the personal case photographs of their more experienced counterparts ... The color atlas and DVD set can be heartily recommended to all forensic pathologists ... a significant addition to the literature ... .
