This book/DVD combination features cases from the New York City medical examiner s office, one of the busiest in the U.S. Because of the number of autopsies performed at this office, the range of examples is exhaustive. The topics covered include typical gunshot wounds, blunt and sharp force trauma, natural diseases with forensic ramifications, accidental deaths occurring in a therapeutic setting, and non-fatal pathologies. The text provides over 1200 color photographs that address both civil and criminally oriented cases. The DVD allows for even easier access to critical information needed by medical examiners."
