diagnostic criteria in forensic pathology
Very few attempts have been made to define diagnostic criteria for pathological diagnoses in forensic pathological practice (criteria for traumatic basal subarachnoid haemorrhage by Leadbeatter being one such example). A diagnostic crietria approach has been attempted in surgical histopathology by Tadrous, and it is hoped that such a compendium will be produced in forensic pathology in due course.
