[Comment] Targeted coronary post-mortem CT angiography, straight to the heart

Soon after the discovery of x-rays in November, 1895, by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, the first post-mortem radiographs were obtained; one example being the post-mortem angiography done by Haschek and Lindenthal in January, 1896.1 However, it took the pioneering work of Richard Dirnhofer and Michael Thali with their Virtopsy group to regain wider attention for post-mortem radiology and more specifically post-mortem CT (PMCT).2 In the past decades, substantial progress has been made, although the main focus of attention has been on adult forensic PMCT.
