Forensic pathology

Forensic pathology focuses on determining the cause of death by post-mortem examination of a corpse or partial remains. An autopsy is commonly performed by a medical examiner, generally during criminal investigations. Where medical examiners are frequently asked to confirm the identity of a dead body. Where the deaths are of unknown cause and those considered unnatural are investigated in this forensic pathology. The methods forensic scientists use to determine death of the individual include examination of tissue specimens to identify the presence or absence of natural disease and other microscopic findings, interpretations of toxicology on body tissues and fluids to determine the chemical cause of overdoses, poisonings or other cases involving toxic agents, and examinations of the injury.
The cause of death, and the circumstances surrounding the cause of death, in which most of the jurisdictions, include homicide, suicide, natural and accidental. The autopsy also provides an opportunity for other issues raised by the death to be identified.
