What is Digital Autopsy?
A Digital Autopsy is a non-invasive post-mortem in which digital imaging technology, with Computerised Tomography (CT) images, are used to develop cross-sectional images for a virtual exploration of a human body.
Digital Autopsy, simply, means conducting a post-mortem in a computerised environment by digital tools.
iGene Digital Autopsy uses proprietary software, not a scalpel, to establish cause of death. Through Digital Autopsy we can reduce the need for invasive procedures and help to minimise the pain for bereaved families. By using Digital Autopsy, statistically, cause of death can be established in over 75% of all post-mortems ordered by the Coroner.
