Our autopsy and decedent affairs group performs the important function of determining immediate and underlying causes of death. Autopsies evaluating the whole body or select organs (such as brain or heart only) are performed by autopsy pathologists and consultant pathologists as needed. Clinical data derived from autopsies are also an important contributor to the educational mission in multiple clinical departments.
In addition to autopsies performed on consented, deceased UCIMC patients, we also conduct autopsies on selected patients from outside institutions. Please contact Decedent Affairs for details.
