Cambridgeshire’s first digital autopsy facility moves a step closerAugust 3, 2016 // No Comments
Plans have been signed off for a revolutionary Digital Autopsy Facility (DAF), which will offer non-invasive post mortems to bereaved families across Cambridgeshire, and the East Of England. Advanced forensic medical software company iGene, operator of the World’s first Digital Autopsy Facility Network, are delighted to provide this service as part of its ever growing DAF Network in England.
Appropriate in more than 70% of cases, when the Coroner requires a post mortem to be undertaken, the centre will enable families to request for a Digital Autopsy as a first line intervention to establish the cause of death as it presents a non-invasive option.
The building, which will be adjacent to Hinchingbrooke Hospital will accommodate, the new Cambridgeshire Digital Autopsy Facility that will also train and support pathologists and radiologists across the region in the benefits of this new technology.
Work on the new facility is now underway and it is expected to open in August 2016.
