Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York City has the largest medical examiner 's office in the United States, and the Brooklyn division is the busiest of the five boroughs. Charles A. Catanese received his Forensic Pathology fellowship training in New York, and then worked full time as a Medical Examiner in the Brooklyn office for more than 10 years. He has personally performed more than 4000 autopsies, including over 400 homicides. Dr. Catanese has worked through several disasters, including TWA Flight 800, AA Flight 587, and more than nine months on the World Trade Center fatalities. He is currently the Chief Medical Examiner of Orange County, New York. Drawing on his wealth of knowledge and experience in solving some of the most difficult cases a forensic examiner could encounter, he assembles hundreds of images from his own work experience to present the Color Atlas of Forensic Medicine and Pathology.

Featuring twice the number of images as any other forensic pathology atlas, the book is filled with high-resolution photos that demonstrate postmortem changes of the human body and the different types of patterns produced in deaths caused by:

  • Natural causes
  • Diagnostic or therapeutic procedures
  • Substance abuse
  • Poisoning
  • Child abuse
  • Firearms
  • Blunt instruments
  • Sharp instruments
  • Burns
  • Asphyxia

This easy-to-read atlas, created for medical and non-medical personnel, covers basic and advanced forensic concepts that relate to all manners of deaths. The carefully worded, unambiguous text describing each photo and the side-by-side comparisons of similar, yet different, pathologies make this remarkable atlas a powerful teaching tool for all those who must confront and solve the mystery of human demise. A fully searchable DVD version is also available.

Book News Annotation:

Dedicating this book to those who died or suffered a loss in the 9-11 attacks, Catanese (who has performed over 4000 autopsies in the course of his career) has compiled hundreds of descriptions and comparable side-by-side forensic images demonstrating post-mortem patterns and changes in the human body. The information is presented with accessibility in mind assuring that this atlas will prove useful not only for medical professionals, but anyone who wants to learn more about forensic pathology (and has a strong stomach). Topics include deaths caused by sudden natural causes, therapeutic interventions and accidents, substance abuse, blunt-force injuries, sharp-force injuries, gunshot wounds, burns, and asphyxia. It also discusses pediatric forensic pathology. The book is illustrated with high quality, detailed, and graphic photos of cadavers, including those of children. Catanese is the Chief Medical Examiner of Orange County, New York and the 10 contributors are his colleagues in the field. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

With twice as many color photographs as any other forensic pathology atlas, this book presents cases from New York City, one of the busiest medical examiner's offices in the country. Organized by type and progression of damage, the text covers fatal and non-fatal injuries, including gunshot wounds, accidental deaths occurring in a therapeutic setting, blunt and sharp force trauma, and natural diseases with forensic ramifications. This volume also provides examples of pattern injuries and their causes, injury characteristics, and changes associated with decomposition. A special chapter addresses pathologies caused by mass disasters. A DVD version is also available.
