Radiological imaging is a fundamental part of the death investigation system. Traditional X-ray equipment is designed to image one part of the body at a time in separate images and is often a rate-limiting step in the autopsy process.
In 2010, the OCME designed and built a brand new, state of the art facility in order to cope with their tremendous workload and perform their duties to the people of Maryland more efficiently. As part of this re-design, the Lodox full-body X-ray system was installed. In the words of the Chief Medical Examiner, Prof David Fowler, Lodox has “revolutionized our turnaround times and accuracy dramatically”.
