AIIMS Delhi to offer virtual autopsies

New Delhi: A digital radiological unit has been set up at the AIIMS mortuary here to enable doctors conduct virtual autopsies with the help of high-tech digital X-rays which can detect even the minutest clots and fractures invisible to the naked eye.

The cutting edge technology is minimally invasive and less time consuming compared to the traditional post-mortem and promises to be a boon in cases where only skeletal remains are recovered, reports Business Standard.

“With the help of virtual autopsy, even smaller fractures like hairline or chip fracture in bones along with bleeding which are signs of ante-mortem injuries can be detected and they can be also documented in the form of X-ray films,” said Dr Sudhir Gupta, head of the AIIMS forensic department.
