  • National Pathology Week - The Autopsy

    National Pathology Week - The Autopsy

    04/01/2009 Duración: 20min

    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. Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists

The Royal College of Pathologists assembled a panel of experts from medicine and industry to ask the question - is self-testing safe? In this podcast, we examine the issues so you can make an informed decision. Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists
