Post-Mortems & Imaging

What Contribution can Imaging Make to General Post Mortems

This study day has been designed to draw on current thinking both nationally and internationally in a bid to better understand advances in the use of radiology in the post-mortem environment of today.  Speakers will range from across pathology, radiography and radiology, paediatric and adult backgrounds and will discuss varying aspects of both traditional surgical and new minimally-invasive techniques – outlining the benefits and drawbacks of each in the clinical setting.

Topics to include:

  • “Limitations of the traditional post mortem”  Dr Aurelie Fabre, Consultant Histopathologist, St Vincent’s University Hospital/Mater Misericordiae Hospital and Dublin Academic Medical Centre


  • Key note lecture : “Towards the minimally invasive autopsy”  Professor Neil Sebire, Professor of Paediatric and Developmental Pathology, University College London/Great Ormond Street Hospital, London

  • “What is the role of the radiographer during post mortem imaging”   Mrs Jennifer Grehan, Lecturer in Diagnostic Imaging, University College Dublin
