National Pathology Week - The Autopsy

04 January 2009
Presented by Ben Valsler


In the final National Pathology Week podcast, we address the ultimate surgical operation - the Autopsy, or Post Mortem. Dr Suzy Lishman and Dr Alison Cluroe shed light on the often misunderstood operation that not only tells us how a person died, but provides vital information to help the living. We get the chance to guess what different autopsy tools are used for (and spot the kitchen-based red herring!), and go through the process of a genuine post mortem. This is a fascinating and unique view behind closed doors, and not for the faint of heart.
