‘Virtual autopsies’ using CT and MRI scans joining traditional dissection methods for post mortems
The scene plays out in autopsy rooms around the world, not to mention on any number of TV crime dramas: a scalpel-wielding pathologist calmly dissects a lifeless body for clues to an untimely death.
The chest and abdominal cavities are pried open, organs removed and the brain eased out through a sawn-off skull in a medical tradition as ancient as the Pharaohs.
It is a tradition, though, facing very modern competition. Led partly by a prominent Canadian pathologist, some specialists are pushing to augment, or on occasion even replace, those conventional post mortems with “virtual autopsies” that use CT and MRI scans to probe bloodlessly inside cadavers.

Living stem cells discovered in 17-day-old corpsesThat the stem cells were found to survive in a dormant state within the body may lead to new ways to keep stem cells viable for longer periods of time.

What?!?! This is incredible.

There is a basophil in the center of the field which has a lobed nucleus (like PMN’s) and numerous coarse, dark blue granules in the cytoplasm. They are infrequent in a normal peripheral blood smear, and their significance is uncertain. A band neutrophil is seen on the left, and a large, activated lymphocyte on the right.

How relevant - currently studying this.
