The ASRT now provides an educational framework for Forensic Radiography, an emerging specialty gaining momentum as a valuable aspect of forensics. Medical imaging provides the scientific backing and tools needed to enhance our existing forensic capabilities.

Forensic Radiology is a field of medical imaging that provides valuable service to the community via data-driven techniques in imaging science. The interprofessional aspects of this subspecialty differ from those of traditional radiology, invoking collaboration with other professionals outside the healthcare field. In working with law enforcement, pathologists and anthropologists, examiners utilize various medical imaging modalities to gain more information about the conditions of people and remains. Through the use of virtual autopsy, remains can be examined without the need for invasive techniques, providing a non-invasive alternative to traditional autopsy.

Textbook authors and the ASRT now recognize Forensic Radiography as an educational pathway and a specialized training area. This new and topical subject is essential for educators, technologists and students alike.

Learning Objectives


Identify the interprofessional aspects of forensic radiology, especially those that differ from other modalities of medical imaging.


Analyze the value of CT and MRI in forensics and law enforcement.


Differentiate between conventional autopsy and virtual autopsy.


List the benefits radiology lends to anthropology, law enforcement and the justice system.
