Medical Department of Forensic


Our motto: “To provide impartial and objective forensics service, and actively contribute in the development of medical science”

Forensic autopsy

The word ‘autopsy’ is derived from the word autos and opsi which literally means to see ourselves. Currently, this definition has grown into a multidisciplannary science that involves other divisions, such as anatomical pathology, odontology, radiology, obstetric and gynaecology as well as many other disciplines. Forensic autopsy is required to determine the cause and mechanism of death, as well as to predict the time of death for criminal investigation on unnatural death. Clinical autopsy can also be requested by family member or by concerned parties in order to determine an illness and its transmission on natural death.
