Abstract

We evaluated >100 Post Mortem CT scans for image quality reducing conditions. Metal artefacts, less-than-ideal positioning and anatomy outside scan field was abundant. We here present our findings and propose content for a poster in the scan room, on how handling of the deceased can increase image quality.
