SARS-CoV-2 heeft er mee voor gezorgd dat ik veel internationale symposia en tal van medico-legale lezingen kan bijwonen. Afgelopen weekend heb ik opnieuw mijn forensische kennis uitgebreid. Een bloemlezing uit het tweedaagse programma van het NAME symposium:

  • Accidental deaths involving trees: professional and non-professional woodcutting and tree failures with autopsy findings 
  • A case of dismemberment using a circular saw 
  • Characteristics of deaths with evidence of pathological hoarding 
  • Death due to electrocution from fractal wood burning 
  • Determination of force required to produce stab wounds in cadaveric chest tissues
  • Flexion-distraction fracture resulting from shaken baby syndrome 
  • Medicolegal death investigation of railroad-related fatalities 
  • NAME toxicology Committee presents: looking ahead to toxicology in 2021 
  • Neck injuries and other findings in pediatric homicide cases versus controls : an institutional case series
  • Novel evaluation of submandibular salivary gland tissue for use as an alternative postmortem toxicology specimen 
  • Positional asphyxia in opioid-related deaths: is it being overlooked?
