Forensic Neuropathology Book Excerpt:

Forensic Neuropathology provides superior visual examples of the more commonly encountered conditions in forensic neuropathology and answers questions that arise regarding neuropathological findings. The work includes values for frequently-encountered clinical assessments, and contains a more comprehensive summary of aging/dating of various neuropathological processes than is available in any other single current source. General pathology residents, forensic pathology and neuropathology fellows, and general pathologists and clinicians involved in referred cases will find this book extremely useful, as will individuals in allied fields such as law enforcement officers and attorneys. Forensic Neuropathology aims to: (1) provide a concise summary of practical information frequently needed in forensic neuropathology cases; (2) include selected material previously known but perhaps not significantly emphasized in current literature; and (3) where possible, to suggest aging/dating parameters for certain neuropathological findings relevant to forensic neuropathology testimony. As a selective reference, the volume emphasizes practical issues and focuses on the most commonly encountered issues among neuropathology and medical examiner professionals. * Over 800 high-quality full-color photographs, gross and microscopic as well as illustrative line drawings * Use of actual cases, briefly summarized and illustrated to emphasize key principles * Focuses on the most-commonly encountered cases as relate to forensic incident and covers these aspects in depth and detail

Forensic Neuropathology Third Edition Book Excerpt:

The field of forensic neuropathology covers such controversial topics as the effects of repeated brain trauma in football players and how babies probably cannot die from being shaken. Jan Leestma is one of the most respected voices in this area. A timely update to his classic reference, Forensic Neuropathology: Third Edition presents an encyclopedic exposition of neuropathological conditions that may have forensic import. Reflecting the latest research, this edition includes expanded sections on multiple trauma, one punch/one hit arterial injuries, and the physiology of respiratory control. It presents new perspectives and rules regarding expert testimony and evidence admissibility occasioned by Daubert and related Supreme Court cases. The book explores how these rulings affect forensic pathologists, neuropathologists, and other potential experts as well as how they interact with the legal system. Several chapters examine the mechanisms and pathophysiology of neuropathological conditions and discuss the biomechanical basis for neurological injury. Where possible, aging and dating methodology is included for various processes. More than 325 updated full-color illustrations complement the text along with diagrams, tables, and figures that illustrate the textual material and can be useful as exhibits in court. An extensive bibliography provides background information and facilitates further research.

Forensic Neuropathology Book Excerpt:

The field of neuropathology is often considered to be one of the most complex areas of pathology. General pathologists as well as forensic pathologists, neuropathologists and paediatric pathologists are frequently presented with complex forensic neuropathology issues, and significant advances in the understanding of head injury, as well as other brain pathology, have highlighted the importance of forensic neuropathology within the medico–legal setting. It is in this climate that Forensic Neuropathology comes into its own. The internationally recognised editor and main author, Helen L. Whitwell, is Professor of Forensic Pathology at Sheffield University, Sheffield, UK, and works jointly as a forensic pathologist and as a neuropathologist. Her co-authors are selected from neuropathological, clinical and forensic practice in the UK and Europe. Forensic Neuropathology is written by experts for specialists and trainees alike and succeeds in addressing the concerns of the forensic pathologist and those of the neuropathologist by tackling the overlapping problems that arise during the postmortem examination and subsequent legal proceedings. The book takes a practical approach and the text is complemented by a wide range of colour illustrations, demonstrating examples and techniques. Subjects covered include anatomy, traumatic brain injury, neurotoxicology and the legal issues that those working in this field need to consider, enabling the reader to make clear, confident decisions.

Essential Forensic Neuropathology Book Excerpt:

This book is written for pathologists and trainees in forensic pathology and neuropathology who will have to conduct forensic neuropathology autopsies. It will provide them with the basic knowledge to conduct a thorough postmortem examination of the nervous system, describe and document the relevant pathological changes, and interpret these findings in a way that will be helpful in determining the cause and manner of death. Great importance will be placed on the objective and rigorous documentation of the pathological findings, because many of these autopsy reports will be re-examined in the context of legal inquiries and proceedings. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text, an image bank, and additional e-figures.

Neuropathology Book Excerpt:

Neuropathology, Volume 145, the latest release in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, includes all the major topics found in a typical neuropathology text, but differentiates itself by providing a thorough overview of the morphological background of neurological disorders for researchers and clinicians who do not specialize in pathology or its clinicopathological aspects. This volume offers strong coverage of brain imaging and advances in molecular pathology and genetics, and is particularly timely given the amount of neuropathological research currently taking place. Provides a resource for the non-pathologist, aiding primary clinicians and researchers in the interpretation of patient symptoms and research findings Includes standard neuropathology, but extends to clinicopathology, imaging and molecular pathology/genetics Presents an interdisciplinary approach that can be applied in everyday clinic and research efforts

Spitz and Fisher s Medicolegal Investigation of Death Book Excerpt:

This is not just a new edition but a different book, emphasizing trauma and wound analysis. The addition of a new co-editor, Dr. Francisco J. Diaz, has brought new ideas to this fifth edition. A chapter by Doctor Jan Leetsma, world-renowned neuropathologist, has also been included. Doctor Leetsma’s vast experience in forensic neuropathology will certainly enhance this book. Several chapters have been eliminated that are no longer applicable or which are adequately covered in other publications. Over time, in the past 48 years, since this book was first published, Medicolegal Investigation of Death has been dubbed the “Bible of Forensic Pathology.” The fifth edition includes over 600 case reports and hundreds of color photographs. The cases are from files the authors have personally handled. According to author Spitz, “We have found many times analysis of small wounds will lead to understanding of a giant case—like the case in Hawaii, where a body was found under a full-size van, with a thread mark on the cheek consistent with having been hit with a black pipe used for gas lines that were found in a bucket in the rear of the van. As it turned out, this was a murder, not an accident.” The book is full of such cases. This book will help you understand the details of injuries and how a person was injured and how they died and how these injuries, perhaps at first blush possibly seemingly insignificant, can shed new light on a case. Medicolegal Investigation of Death now embraces not just basic forensic pathology but also includes death during restraint, conscious pain and suffering and new concepts related to the interpretation of injuries by detailed wound analysis. The continued use of simple, non-technical terminology makes this book a truly unique treatise and source of information.
