New Page of Autopsy Manual: Heart

20 Dec

I have added a page on the heart to the autopsy manual. I hope to expand this chapter with more references and examples as I resume work now at Magee Hospital. I spent more time on this page describing how I do the dissection than I have in other pages since it is more difficult with the small size and often soft texture of fetal hearts. As I hope this manual will be of value to residents of pathology, I would like someday to be able to create videos of the dissection technique, since I find learning this aspect of the autopsy to be difficult for novices.
