Because of the difficulties in concluding whether a person has drowned or not, information that could be relevant for postmortal diagnosis of drowning was studied. With postmortal CT images lung volume, mean attenuation, anterior-posterior difference, lung density profile and amount of water within the lungs were investigated. The report also evaluates three examples of software that calculates lung volume from postmortal CT images: Siemens’ Syngo Pulmo CT, Siemens‘ Volume Evaluation and GE Medical Systems’ Volume Viewer. The method used at autopsy was also studied. The repeatability and validity were tested and sources of errors identified. Repeatability and va...
