Private/Personal Benefits

Digital Autopsy affords dignity and respect to the deceased and is considered more humane. A post-mortem without the need for an invasive procedure eases the family's pain at a difficult time and also means in many occasions that the coroner can release the body sooner than they can for a normal invasive post- mortem. Additionally, Digital Autopsy offers religious and cultural benefits.

  • A minimal invasive alternative to traditional post-mortems.

  • Meets religious requirements.

  • Improve services and efficiencies.

  • Potential cost reductions.

  • Choice for the Coroner and the Community.

  • Far reaching benefits for forensic cases.

  • Involves the creation of a record that can be revisited, offering greater value and usefulness than a traditional post-mortem.
