Overview

Pathology of the Heart and Sudden Death in Forensic Investigations discusses the pathology of the cardiovascular system from the forensic perspective. This book contains basic functional anatomy of the heart, combining views on examination from clinical and pathologic perspectives. It systematically treats patho-physiologic changes and specific heart diseases and explains the benefits of communication between forensic specialists and clinicians in determining cause of death. It also presents recent findings on pediatric pathology. Including 150 color photographs that show forensic aspects of cardiopathology, it provides information that a forensic pathologist needs in a single source.
