Essentials of Autopsy Practice is dedicated to updating the modern pathologist on the issues related to the autopsy. This first volume contains 12 topical chapters which are not covered in any other text. It comprises the most recent developments in current autopsy and relevant subjects that have not yet been covered in current autopsy textbooks. This is what makes this book exceptional in its field. The book will be of interest to both trainees and consultants in all sub-branches of pathology including forensic pathology. The subject matter will also appeal to other areas of clinical medicine and will make a good reference book.
