A mainstay for pathology residents, Autopsy Pathology is designed with a uniquely combined manual and atlas format that presents today’s most complete coverage of performing, interpreting, and reporting post-mortem examinations. This lasting and useful medical reference book offers a practical, step-by-step approach to discussing not only the basics of the specialty, but the performance of specialized autopsy procedures as well.

  • Material is divided into two sections for ease of use: a manual covering specific autopsy procedures, biosafety, generation of autopsy reports, preparation of death certificates, and other essential subjects; and an atlas, organized by organ system, which captures the appearance of the complete spectrum of autopsy findings.
  • Covers forensic pathology in a chapter introducing the subspecialty.
  • Offers expanded coverage of microscopic anatomy.
  • Includes a chapter on performing special dissection procedures that may not be covered during a typical residency.
  • Examines important techniques, such as autopsy photography and radiology, microscopic examination, supplemental laboratory studies, and other investigative approaches.
  • Addresses the latest legal, social, and ethical issues relating to autopsies, as well as quality improvement and quality assurance.
  • Presents more than 600 full-color photographs depicting common gross and microscopic autopsy findings for every part of the body.
  • Correlates pathologic findings with their clinical causes to enhance diagnostic accuracy.
  • Improved images in the Atlas section provide greater visual understanding.
