Postmortem and Forensic Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Imaging modalities such as plain radiography have been used successfully for more than a century to shed light on forensic investigations. In 1895, the first case involving an X-ray of a lower extremity was admitted to court in North America. This particular case involved a shooting in the leg of an individual named Mr. Tolson Cunning, and the bullet could be located between the fibula and tibia by X-ray [1,2]. The first attempted murder that was admitted to court with radiography as evidence was a case in the United Kingdom in which a man attempted to kill his wife with four shots to the head before he committed suicide [3-5].
