Recent Advances in Forensic Medicine & Toxicology (Volume 1)

by Gautam Biswas

This book Recent Advances in Forensic Medicine and Toxicology has been written in clear and concise language suitable for a wide audience of readers. It is well illustrated with color photographs, diagrams, textboxes, tables and flow charts to emphasize salient features and clear communication of concepts. The book focuses on both practical and scientific aspects of the different areas of expertise within the broad field of forensic medicine and toxicology. The idea is to strengthen and enhance the role of forensic medicine in the court room that will subsequently help to solve crimes and bring justice. Twenty-two chapters comprising of some common forensic topics likely to be encountered in the daily routine, as well as special topics which are not frequently encountered including both legal obligations and ethical responsibilities of those involved in the forensic setting are discussed. The chapters are written by experts who are leading authorities in their field of specialty and each chapter is extensively researched and references are cited at the end. The book is further divided into three sections: section I dealt on medical jurisprudence covering legal and ethical issues and essential concepts in the interface between medicine and the law. Section II dealt with clinical forensic medicine that will help in serving as a practical guide to daily medicolegal work. Section III covers forensic pathology and discusses the current issues and concepts on judicial hanging, dyadic deaths, fat embolism, tattoos, sudden infant death syndrome and post-autopsy reconstruction. The book would fill the vacuum for a forensic book needed by those medical and legal professionals who work alongside or interact with forensic experts.
