Forensic and digital healthcare experts envision the incorporation of virtual/augmented reality into forensic science, with digital reconstructions and machine learning algorithms diagnosing cause of death, identifying victims, and even triaging injuries in living patients.
Critical to such advances are computed tomography (CT) scans that generate cross-sectional images of the body; Australia's Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine has compiled a database of about 80,000 CT scans covering a wide range of causes of deaths.
The institute is working with Australia's Monash University and U.S. biomedical and defense company Leidos Holding on an incisionless autopsy method that will three-dimensionally (3D) reconstruct a dead person’s body digitally.
