An Atlas of Skeletal Trauma in Medico Legal Contexts

The increasing use of routine post-mortem CT scans in forensic pathology practice in many jurisdictions has expanded the capacity to evaluate skeletal trauma. This in turn, challenges current practitioners to be aware of skeletal injury patterns and the ways they which they can be recorded and presented in court. Typically when skeletal remains are located and exhibit evidence of trauma, forensic anthropologists and pathologists base their interpretations of the mechanism of trauma on their experience and understanding of the biomechanics of fractures. In order to augment this process, Atlas of Forensic Skeletal Trauma provides the reader with de-identified cases from the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine where the cause of death and mechanism of trauma are recorded to compile a comprehensive descriptive and visual representation of adult and child skeletal trauma. Atlas of Forensic Skeletal Trauma presents a range of adult and child skeletal trauma cases that occur in medico-legal contexts and includes high quality and comprehensive photographs and computed tomography (CT) images as well as descriptive text. A valuable guide to the interpretation of skeletal trauma for practitioners and students of forensic anthropology, pathology and radiology Coverage of skeletal trauma cases resulting from high and low velocity projectiles, low energy blunt force (e.g., assaults involving various implements, hangings, strangulations, falls), high energy blunt force (e.g., motor vehicle and aviation incidents) sharp force, as well as accidental and non-accidental injuries in children, medical intervention, taphonomic changes and skeletal variation Each section includes case studies with written and visual descriptions, and discussion as well as an up-to-date literature review

Post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) is increasingly used in forensic pathology practice in many jurisdictions. Such imaging has expanded the capacity to evaluate skeletal trauma improving the visualisation, documentation and presentation of forensic findings. Typically when deceased persons are located and exhibit evidence of trauma, forensic pathologist, anthropologists and radiologists base their interpretations of the mechanism of trauma on their experience and understanding of the biomechanics of fractures as well as recognisable patterns of injury.

Through a set of unique case studies written by an international group of practicing forensic anthropologists, Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology: Bonified Skeletons prepares students and professionals for the diverse range of cases and challenges they will encounter in the field. Every forensic anthropology case is unique. Practitioners routinely face new challenges and unexpected outcomes. Courses and introductory texts generally address standard or ideal cases. In practice, however, forensic anthropologists must improvise frequently during forensic archaeological recoveries and laboratory analyses

Born out of the need to recover, analyze, and present physical evidence on thousands of individual victims of large-scale human rights violations, multi-national, multi-disciplinary forensic teams developed a sophisticated system for the examination of human remains and set a precedent for future investigations. Codifying this process, Skeletal Trauma: Identification of Injuries Resulting from Human Rights Abuse and Armed Conflict describes an epidemiological framework for collecting, analyzing, and interpreting evidence for use at trial. It pieces together fragments of skeletal tissue

Publius Syrus stated back in 42 B.C., “You cannot put the same shoe on every foot.” (Maxim 596) Though written long before the advent of forensic science, Syrus’ maxim summarizes the theme of Forensic Medicine of the Lower Extremity: Human Identification and Trauma Analysis of the Thigh, Leg, and Foot. Put simply, the lower extremity is a tremendously variable anatomic region. This variation is beneficial to forensic experts. Differences in the leg and foot can be used to establish individual identity.

Recent political, religious, ethnic, and racial conflicts, as well as mass disasters, have significantly helped to bring to light the almost unknown dis- pline of forensic anthropology. This science has become particularly useful to forensic pathologists because it aids in solving various puzzles, such as id- tifying victims and documenting crimes. On topics such as mass disasters and crimes against humanity, teamwork between forensic pathologists and for- sic anthropologists has significantly increased over the few last years. This relationship has
