New autopsy manual section on liver

17 Jan

The latest post has my same complaints: I need a library to read or reread articles, and I lack many images that I had. The posted manuals are more like an outline that needs to be filled in.

The manual will be the basis for the stillbirth study, which I hope will be able to become multi-institutional. I have done over 2,000 perinatal autopsies in 40 years, 40 people doing 50 autopsies a year could achieve the same experience in a year if we pool information and images. With more careful protocols and insights gained in previous autopsies we have performed, and perhaps with more resources as part of a funded study, we will be able to provide even more meaningful information. Hope some of this will become reality. I am now Pittsburgh, to start work at Magee on Feb 1.
