£2m digital autopsy facility in Bradford

The special scanner – only the second in the country – was unveiled in Bradford at the end of May and is now ready to become operational.

It is next to the city public mortuary in Burnham Avenue and aims to improve the performance and results of post-mortems investigations, and create a more humanitarian way of conducting them.

The system, created by Malaysian company iGene, and supported by Saad Foundation has a CT scanner and revolutionary software, and ends with a 3D reconstruction of a body on a computer screen for a pathologist to examine, which can take as little as 12 minutes.

Baroness Warsi visits new UK digital autopsy facility

A news coverage of Baroness Warsi and Bradford Mayor visiting UK digital autopsy facility in Bradford.

She visited iGene today together with senior police figures responsible for serious crime in Bradford and Ramzan Mohayuddin of the Saad Foundation.

The Bradford centre is operated by iGene and is part of the multi-million pound UK-wide network of Digital Autopsy facilities that is transforming the way post mortems are carried out. Using the system, a scene of death or crime could be reconstructed digitally using the 3D capabilities of the system and using a digital autopsy rather than a traditional invasive one, preserving key evidence that might otherwise be damaged. The results are available almost immediately and can be shared digitally between police forces.
