Postmortem computed tomography (PMCT) imaging has emerged as a valuable and non-invasive tool in forensic investigations, supporting the way we examine and understand postmortem cases. Its ability to provide rapid, three-dimensional reconstructions of the body enables detailed visualization of internal structures, offering additional insights into the anatomy and pathology of the deceased.
Our research group specializes in this cutting-edge field of postmortem CT image analysis, employing advanced techniques to enhance our understanding of pathology detection and determination of the cause of death. Leveraging the power of computational methods, we are at the forefront of developing automated methods that can efficiently identify and analyze pathological findings within CT data, supporting the forensic investigation process. Additionally, our work extends to the identification of unknown individuals through the analysis of the sternum, an anatomical structure that holds valuable information for forensic purposes. By combining innovative technology with forensic expertise, our research group aims to contribute significantly to the field, advancing the capabilities of forensic science and aiding in the resolution of complex cases.
