[Correspondence] Can post-mortem CT and angiography provide all the answers?
We commend Guy Rutty and colleagues on their Article (July 8, p 145)1 recommending the use of post-mortem imaging at autopsy. A fundamental role of the pathologist is to assist the coroner in fulfilling their statutory duty in establishing the cause and circumstances of death. How precise that cause of death needs to be depends on the requirements of the relevant legislation. To what extent pathology and radiology can satisfactorily provide the information to inform this advice depends on the circumstances of the case and, most importantly, on the questions being asked by interested parties, including families.
