Imaging techniques are a powerful tool in forensic science.
Medical examiners and forensic anthropologists are less versed in the finer points of radiology than radiologists ; nevertheless they are required to interpret findings from imaging studies to further medico-legal investigations.
The forensic investigator often should call upon the radiologist whose expertise might prove invaluable in forensic consultations.
The radiologist should be aware of the importance of storing radiographs over prolonged periods of time and of efficient record keeping methods, because various legal problems may require the radiographs for additional interpretation or for their presentation in court.
Some of the main issues that might be encountered in forensic radiology are discussed in this review.
