Post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) is increasingly used in forensic pathology practice in many jurisdictions. Such imaging has expanded the capacity to evaluate skeletal trauma improving the visualisation, documentation and presentation of forensic findings. Typically when deceased persons are located and exhibit evidence of trauma, forensic pathologist, anthropologists and radiologists base their interpretations of the mechanism of trauma on their experience and understanding of the biomechanics of fractures as well as recognisable patterns of injury. In order to augment this process, An Atlas of Forensic Skeletal Trauma presents a range of de-identified adult and child skeletal trauma cases that occur in medico-legal contexts where the cause of death and mechanism of trauma are recorded. An Atlas of Forensic Skeletal Trauma includes comprehensive photographs and PMCT images as well as descriptive text. Presents a valuable guide to the interpretation of skeletal trauma for practitioners and students of forensic anthropology, pathology and radiology Provides coverage of skeletal trauma cases resulting from high and low velocity projectiles, low energy blunt force (e.g., assaults involving various implements, hangings, strangulations, falls), high energy blunt force (e.g., motor vehicle and aviation incidents), and more Includes case studies with written and visual descriptions, discussions and up-to-date literature review

Presenting a rare glimpse into the various laboratories that involve forensic anthropology, The Forensic Anthropology Laboratory reveals the ways in which anthropologists document, process, and collect data for academic research and practical and legal applications, including time of death, trauma analyses, and the identification of unknown human remains. Drawing from a wide range of sources, the book begins with detailed descriptions of how body donations are received and processed. It includes extraordinary photos documenting the steps taken to ensure that each body part is tracked from the moment it is received through the decomposition and skeletonization processes. Dr. David Hunt, of the Smithsonian Institution, discusses destructive analysis, diagnostic imaging, casting, and all types of anthroposcopic and anthropometric data collection methods. The book also compares the duties of full-time forensic anthropologists in a medical examiner’s office with their academic counterparts, discussing staffing, physical plant concerns, field recovery procedures, and laboratory processing. It stresses the variety of required skills, including fingerprinting and other trace evidence procedures, and highlights casework examples from FACES, illustrating the technology used to establish identifications through facial reconstruction, photographic superimposition, and age progression. Using examples from the World Trade Center, Hurricane Katrina, and the Asian Tsunami disasters, the book examines the roles of forensic anthropologists and pathologists as mass fatality responders. It discusses practical issues and explains how and where the mobile disaster morgue can be used, including morgue floor plans and equipment. A one-of-a-kind survey of a variety of forensic anthropology laboratories, the editors provide an insider’s view of functioning laboratories as reported by some of the most respected and prolific anthropologists in clinical, research, and academic settings.

Mit dem Blick auf die Feinstrukturen werden die Innenräume der Zellen und ihre Architekturen in der höheren Organisation der Gewebe lebendig. Die Autoren geben mit diesem Atlas der funktionellen Ultrastruktur Einblick in die komplexe zelluläre Innenwelt mit ihren vielgestaltigen Funktionsräumen, sowie in dynamische Funktionsabläufe, die für die Erfüllung der zellulären Aufgaben im Gewebe notwendig sind. Das besondere Anliegen besteht darin, dem Leser bewusst zu machen, dass es sich hier um diejenigen Strukturen handelt, in denen sich grundlegende zelluläre Lebensvorgänge und krankmachende Mechanismen abspielen. An Hand elektronenmikroskopischer Bilder, ergänzt durch Immunelektronenmikroskopie und ausführlicher Beschreibung werden in den Zellen die Beziehungen zwischen Strukturen und Funktionen aufgerollt, Details herausgearbeitet und die Organisation in den Zellverbänden der Gewebe präsentiert. Das Buch wendet sich an Medizin- und Naturwissenschaftsstudenten, Ärzte, Biologen, Zell- und Molekularbiologen.

It has been clear for many years that the ways in which archaeology is practised have been a direct product of a particular set of social, cultural, and historical circumstances - archaeology is always carried out in the present. More recently, however, many have begun to consider how archaeological techniques might be used to reflect more directly on the contemporary world itself: how we might undertake archaeologies of, as well as in the present. This Handbook is the first comprehensive survey of an exciting and rapidly expanding sub-field and provides an authoritative overview of the newly emerging focus on the archaeology of the present and recent past. In addition to detailed archaeological case studies, it includes essays by scholars working on the relationships of different disciplines to the archaeology of the contemporary world, including anthropology, psychology, philosophy, historical geography, science and technology studies, communications and media, ethnoarchaeology, forensic archaeology, sociology, film, performance, and contemporary art. This volume seeks to explore the boundaries of an emerging sub-discipline, to develop a tool-kit of concepts and methods which are applicable to this new field, and to suggest important future trajectories for research. It makes a significant intervention by drawing together scholars working on a broad range of themes, approaches, methods, and case studies from diverse contexts in different parts of the world, which have not previously been considered collectively.

Dieses Buch ist das Standardwerk zu einem neuen Bereich der angewandten Fuzzy-Technologie, der Fuzzy-Clusteranalyse. Diese beinhaltet Verfahren der Mustererkennung zur Gruppierung und Strukturierung von Daten. Dabei werden im Gegensatz zu klassischen Clustering-Techniken die Daten nicht eindeutig zu Klassen zugeordnet, sondern Zugehörigkeitsgrade bestimmt, so daß die Fuzzy-Verfahren robust gegenüber gestörten oder verrauschten Daten sind und fließende Klassenübergänge handhaben können. Dieses Werk gibt eine methodische Einführung in die zahlreichen Fuzzy-Clustering-Algorithmen mit ihren Anwendungen in den Bereichen Datenanalyse, Erzeugung von Regeln für Fuzzy-Regler, Klassifikations- und Approximationsprobleme sowie eine ausführliche Darstellung des Shell-Clustering zur Erkennung von geometrischen Konturen in Bildern.
