Behind the Scene of the Medical Examiner's Office!

"Great DVD, not for children, but very educational. This DVD shows every aspect of an Autopsy, from Speculating the cause of death, preparing the body, incisions, descriptions of what is being looked at and why, including weights, to the conclusion of the autopsy! This DVD gives you the feeling that you are actually a part of the Autopsy yourself!
Avoid this film...

"You would be better served and entertained watching the HBO series "Autopsy" with Dr. Michael Baden. This struck me as a cheap and quick attempt to cash in on the popularity of forensic science. In this film you witness an autopsy of an elderly woman. No history is given and no explanation is given as to what is being done or why. If you do not have any medical training or background, you won't get anything from watching this."
Who needs sound anyway?

"I bought the DVD with an eye toward using it in a forensic evidence class. Unfortunately, the sound on the video is dismal. The doctor mumbles and the other pathologists look like deer in headlights. You would think there might be more than one choice for a topic as educational as an autopsy.
The reviewer who mentioned lack of context is exactly right. No history was provided, and to come to closure on the actual c/o/d was no small accomplishment either."
