Brogdon's Forensic Radiology, Second Edition
Edited by Michael J. Thali, M.D., Mark D. Viner, B.G. Brogdon
CRC Press – 2011 – 654 pages
The benchmark first edition of Forensic Radiology, published in 1998, was a milestone in the forensic community — a bestseller throughout the world and a standard reference for practitioners and educators alike. Like its predecessor, Brogdon’s Forensic Radiology, Second Edition covers the entire scope of radiological applications in the forensic sciences, profiling current and anticipated uses of new modalities and techniques.
For radiologists, forensic scientists, forensic dentists, medical examiners, investigators, and attorneys
Over the past twelve years, the fields of forensic science and radiology have developed considerably, necessitating a revision of this critical work.
New Topics in this Edition include:
" … a reference work of unparalleled excellence for forensic scientists and judicial personnel. It is packed with useful information, is well-organized, and profusely illustrated. … a plethora of amazing radiographs and images, both black and white and in color. This book is a "must have" reference for not only radiologists, but for forensic scientists, especially forensic odontologists, medical examiners, and field investigators. Attorneys and others who must understand radiological findings in forensic cases will also want this book in their personal library."
—Janet Barber Duval in Forensic Digest and Forensic Times
" … this beautifully written book should not be confined to the libraries of physicians. … will be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of practitioners of forensic science of any sort."
—Gregory G. Davis, M.D., in Journal of Forensic Science
"The second edition of Brogdon’s Forensic Radiology is updated, timely, and extremely well organized. It should be considered the new reference standard for forensic imaging."
—American Journal of Roentgenology

Michael J. Thali has written many virtual autopsy papers (see www.virtopsy.com) and is editor of the book The Virtopsy Approach. He has been a professor of forensic medicine at the University of Bern, Switzerland since 2006, and at the time of finishing this book is the director of the Forensic Institute at the University of Bern.
Mark D. Viner is a Fellow of Cranfield University Forensic Institute, Chief Executive of the Inforce Foundation, and a Senior Manager at St. Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospitals. He has a long-held interest in forensic imaging and emergency planning, developed during almost 30 years of experience as radiographer and radiology manager in the United Kingdom.
B.G. Brogdon’s interest and experience in forensic radiology goes back more than 40 years to a time when he was radiologist-in- charge at the Division of Diagnostic Radiology at Johns Hopkins. His involvement in the field continued throughout his tenures as professor and Chair of the Departments of Radiology at the University of New Mexico and, later, at the University of South Alabama where he is now University Distinguished Professor Emeritus.
