Virtual postmortem of dead bodies will be done without making an incision in AIIMS

The forensic radiology lab for virtual postmortem at the Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is now fully ready. After this, CT (computed tomography) machine has been installed after a digital x-ray, with the help of which the autopsy will be done without incision. This technique will be used in the post mortem of the victims of suicide and accidents. The help of this technique will also be taken in some cases of murder. On Saturday, Dr. Balram Bhargava, Director General of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) introduced the facility. Doctors in the forensic department of AIIMS say that India is the first country in South East Asia to start a virtual post-mortem. In collaboration with ICMR, its facility has been started in AIIMS only. In the coming time, it can be started in some other big medical institutions in the country. Dr. Sudhir Gupta, head of the department of forensic department of AIIMS, said that post mortem is an important part of a police investigation in cases of unnatural death. For this, dead bodies have to be tested by making an incision. About three thousand postmortems are done every year in AIIMS
