State‐of‐the‐art of visualization in post‐mortem imaging
Autopsies constitute a valuable feedback to the healthcare chain to achieve improvements in quality of care and cost effectiveness. This review describes post‐mortem imaging, which has emerged as an important part of the pathology toolbox. A broad range of visualization aspects within post‐mortem imaging are covered. General state‐of‐the‐art overviews of the components in the visualization pipeline are complemented by in‐depth descriptions of methods developed by the authors and our collaborators. The forensic field is represented and related to, as it is spearheading much development in post‐mortem imaging. Other topics are workflow, imaging data acquisition, and visualization rendering technology. All in all, this review shows the mature state of visual analysis for a non‐ or minimal‐invasive investigation of the deceased patient.
