Virtopsy Courses

Virtopsy is actively involved in teaching and training. Virtopsy Courses provide theoretical knowledge of and at least some initial practical skills in forensic imaging, notably post-mortem CT and MR, post-mortem angiography, surface scanning and 3D-photogrammetry, robot-guided biopsy, and clinical forensic imaging.

There is a Basic Course (2 days) and, immediately following, the Advanced Course (3 days).

Please note:

  • The course also contains a special focus on Forensic Anthropology, as this field has taken up forensic post mortem imaging across commingled remains, mummy research and mass disaster events. Particularly for forensic radiologists, this new area of examination and research is very relevant from our own medicolegal viewpoint.
  • The 3D surface documentation session also contains a workshop part where applicants construct their own photogrammetric 3D model.

Both Virtopsy Courses are a requirement for the CAS in Forensic Imaging and Virtopsy. The CAS in Forensic Imaging and Virtopsy is a University of Zurich issued Certificate of Advanced Studies; it contains an additional part that is largely centered around practical skills.

Target audience

Virtopsy Courses are aimed at all persons who are professionally interested or actively involved in forensic radiology and imaging, including forensic pathologists/medical examiners, radiologists, coroners, radiographers/radiology technicians, surveying specialists and anthropologist.
