Abstract null null A prospective study was undertaken of 150 medicolegal cases where five or more tattoos were identified in anatomically separate areas. All cases were the subject of full police and coronial investigations with examination by forensic pathologists. There were 120 males and 30 females (M:F = 4:1) with an age range of 22–86 years (mean = 48.1 years). 78 cases were found where deaths were due to natural diseases (52%) (age range 27–82 years; mean 55.3 years; M:F = 4.2:1). 72 cases...

Abstract null null Teeth are important exhibits to establish the identity of unidentified dead bodies by DNA profiling. Tooth acts as a cage to protect DNA from harsh environmental conditions. Unidentified bodies are sometimes found many years after death causing loss of valuable soft tissues which can be used for DNA extraction. Skeletal remains and dental evidence provide the best alternative when decomposed or burnt bodies are examined to establish the identity. In this study, the powder-free...

BACKGROUND Three-dimensional imaging is a rapidly growing technology that has revealed exciting insights in disparate fields of research, especially in medicine, forensics, and archaeology. Recent advancements in this technology have also made a remarkable impact in the field of anthropology and odontology. A major benefit of this technology is that they offer effective methods of creating digital records that can aid in physical documentation and can be digitally stored for later assessment and...
As the COVID-19 pandemic progressed in early 2020, social distancing rules and 'lockdowns' brought face-to-face teaching in universities in the UK, and globally, to a halt, leading to an abrupt move to online teaching and learning. This article details student feedback to a course on applied forensic medicine and pathology - framed as 'safeguarding vulnerable patients' - which was adapted for delivery online in response to restrictions imposed by the pandemic. That feedback indicated that the ad...

Abstract null null Background null Orofacial trauma can encompass, isolated or not, several anatomical regions, namely facial, dental and temporomandibular joint (TMJ), one of the most complex joints in the human body. Evidence-based knowledge in the field of TMJ trauma and in temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) diagnosis and treatment, provides the necessary data for medico-legal assessment. null null null Objective null The aim of this study is to bring up epidemiological data referring to...

Abstract null null About two-thirds of sudden deaths are sudden cardiac deaths (SCD), and ischemic heart disease (IHD) accounts for 60% of these. Although an autopsy needs to be performed to prove SCD, the forensic autopsy rate is very low in Japan. To diagnose the cause of death, postmortem computed tomography (PMCT) is often performed. Because coronary artery calcification (CAC) is a risk factor in cardiac diseases such as IHD and its severity can be evaluated with CT, we examined its ability ...

Abstract null null Human skin hosts a variety of microbes that can be transferred to surfaces (“touch microbiome”). These microorganisms can be considered as forensic markers similarly to “touch DNA”. With this pilot study, we wanted to evaluate the transferability and persistence of the “touch microbiome” on a surface after the deposition of a fingerprint and its exposure for 30 days at room temperature. Eleven volunteers were enrolled in the study. Skin microbiome samples were collected by swa...

Abstract null null The maintenance of oral health contributes to the overall health of an individual. Similar to the Adult Dental Health Survey in the UK, the Survey of Dental Diseases (SDD) is being conducted in Japan. However, our routine oral examination of autopsy cases showed that the oral cavities of the autopsied bodies were unhealthy as compared to the SDD data. null Therefore, this study sought to understand the actual condition of the oral cavity and to clarify the factors related to t...

Abstract null null Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is recognised as a serious global public health problem that imposes a heavy socioeconomic burden on society. The vast majority of cases result from road traffic accidents and falls, and the injuries are mainly attributed to velocity-related mechanisms. Lethal cases are mostly found to suffer from severe diffuse brain injuries (DBI), comprising diffuse vascular injury, diffuse axonal injury (DAI), generalized cerebral edema and ischemic-hypoxic inj...
