Digital autopsy: scalpels in the past






Due to data obtained by means of multislice computed tomography (MSCT), and a specially written for their processing software, Malaysian entrepreneur Mathavan (Matt) Chandran hopes to significantly reduce the need for autopsy procedure at autopsy. After all, he created a system that allows the smallest detail (in 2D and 3D-mode) to review all the details of the subject of interest pathologist body.

Chandran, CEO of iGene believes that the new method of digital autopsy will significantly ease the suffering endured by the family of the deceased, if the usual methods of opening contrary to their religious principles. In addition, the system adds the convenience of physicians and other organizations that have access to that type of data. The bottom line is that the information held on the digital autopsy would be credited to a special server, where it can be obtained more quickly, reducing time on paperwork. Moreover, such systems can be very successfully used as a simulation platform for the professional training of students.



Pramond Bagan, CEO InfoValley, whose subsidiary is iGene says that such a system is “more convenient alternative means, not the complete replacement of traditional autopsy.” But it is 70 percent can reduce the time required for a conventional autopsy. The system is very convenient, since it will be able to conduct a pathologist to take a more informed decision on whether or not to open the body, if there is no serious need.



It should be noted that the possibility of non-invasive diagnostic tasks such as angiography and toxicology used in medical equipment, and other companies – Siemens, General Electric, Toshiba and Philips. Chandran hopes that from October 2013 it will be able to open in England 18 centers, which will use a new method of autopsy. In these centers, this procedure will be offered as an alternative and ask for it to be 500 pounds.
