Anatomic Pathology & Forensic Pathology
Anatomic pathology relates to the examination, processing, and diagnosis of specimens obtained from the diagnosis.
Forensic pathology is a branch of pathology that determines the cause of death by examination of a corpse where a post-mortem is performed usually during the investigation of criminal cases and civil law cases. Similarly, Coroners and medical examiners are asked to confirm the identity of a corpse.
These pathologists collect data and examine tissue specimens under the microscope for the presence or absence of disease and other findings such as Asbestos bodies, gunpowder particles around a gunshot wound.
Sometimes Forensic physicians are referred to as "Forensic medical examiners" or "police surgeons" and are also medical doctors who got trained in the examination and provision of medical treatment for living victims including Sexual assault & individuals who are in police custody.
