Post mortem imaging (PMI) utilizing cross-sectional modalities is a rapidly emerging field. The value of PMI is well established in adult imaging and is finding growing acceptance in the pediatric and perinatal domains. Parents who are reluctant to allow conventional autopsy of their deceased child are more willing to permit post mortem imaging alone (“virtual autopsy”) or as imaging guided, limited conventional autopsy. PMI encompasses several different diagnostic areas beginning with perinatal/neonatal evaluation of known or suspected genetic abnormalities (e.g. skeletal dysplasia) and determination of live vs. stillbirth. In medicolegal cases PMI is used to evaluate cause/manner of death in infants and children, including suspected non-accidental trauma. Our goals for this committee/task force include informing SPR members, other radiology colleagues, and referring clinicians about the advantages and limitations of PMI by providing references and Pub Med links, guiding standardization of imaging protocols, and contributing to the PMI knowledge base. We hope to provide assistance to radiologists in our community hospitals who are unfamiliar with pediatric PMI and to our local Medical Examiners and the State Departments of Justice in their death investigations. In addition PMI data on emergency medical intervention can be use to assess procedures used by local/regional Emergency Medical Response teams.
