Virtopsy denotes ‘virtual autopsy’. Like autopsy, virtopsy is an multidisciplinary approach that combines forensic medicine, pathology, biomechanics and digitized radiographic imaging of human organs and tissues to provide clues for forensic identification of the cause and manner of death. It is a minimally invasive, observer-independent new-age technique in postmortem examination. This article is an overview of the advancing methodology and its potential application in forensic sciences in developing countries.

Keywords: Virtopsy, forensic science, radiographic imaging.
