Autopsy means autopsy
Autopsy or autopsy is the ' seeing with your own eyes ' or a corpse. It is the internal examination of the body of a deceased person (in order to determine the cause of death). An autopsy is performed by a pathologist (an art that specializes). The pathologist will first carry out an extensive external examination, after which the internal examination will commence. In the internal investigation, all organs of the deceased are examined, sometimes also the brains are taken. The research is done with as little damage as possible, so that there is virtually nothing more to be seen afterwards. Autopsy is carried out to determine the cause of death, but it can also determine whether there is an infectious or hereditary disease.
