The Digital Autopsy Suite and CT Scanning service will allow for a non-invasive post-mortem option for residents of the borough and greater surrounding areas. A digital autopsy is an advanced process that utilises software and a digital CT scan of the deceased to allow an examination to be conducted, without a full invasive autopsy.
The support from the community was highlighted in the report from the Council in recognising that the new service is “strongly supported by the Muslim and Jewish faith communities in particular.”
The DAS and CT Scanner will also allow for a quicker issuing of the Death Report and consequently allowing for a speedy burial and Janazah, as Islam recommends.
