The first two editions of Forensic Pathology have been highly touted as the definitive, go-to text reference on forensic pathology and this latest edition is no exception.
DiMaio’s Forensic Pathology, Third Edition is fully updated to include the many advancements that have occurred in the field over the last 20 years since the last edition was published. Joining Dr. Vincent DiMaio is practicing forensic pathologist Dr. Kimberley Molina who brings her expertise to the latest edition of this all-time best-selling work. Historical chapters have been reviewed and updated, and the natural disease and toxicology chapters have been streamlined, so as to expand on the new improvements in the field. New content includes discussions on chronic traumatic encephalopathy, sudden unexplained infant deaths, deaths in the elderly and blast injuries – among other topics. Chapters incorporate changes to death investigation, forensic DNA typing and other relevant fields relative to forensic pathology and determination of death. In addition, the third edition includes an entirely new – and long-sought-after – chapter summarizing Dr. DiMaio’s world-renowned expertise on gunshot wounds.
DiMaio’s Forensic Pathology, Third Edition maintains its concise, easy-to-read format with completely updated references and over 400 full-color demonstrative photographs and photomicrographs to illustrate concepts – making it appealing not only to forensic pathologists, but also law enforcement personnel and attorneys. This highly anticipated work continues Dr. DiMaio’s long legacy of producing invaluable educational and professional resources.
