There are numerous advantages described of how imaging technology can support forensic examinations. However, postmortem examinations of bodies are mainly performed to address demands which differ from those of traditional clinical image processing. This needs to be kept in mind when gathering information from image data sets for forensic purposes. To support radiologists and forensic clinicians using Virtual Autopsy technologies, an initial workflow study regarding post-mortem imaging has been performed, aiming to receive an improved understanding of how Virtual Autopsy workstations, image data sets and processes can be adjusted to support and improve conventional autopsies. This paper presents potential impacts and a current forensic Virtual Autopsy workflow aiming to form a foundation for collaborative procedures that increase the value of Virtual Autopsy. The workflow study will provide an increased and mutual understanding of involved professionals. In addition, insight into future forensic workflows based on demands from both forensic and radiologist perspectives bring visualization and medical informatics researchers together to develop and improve the technology and software needed.
