Death and autopsies

Our Forensic Pathology and Forensic Toxicology teams work closely with the State Coroner, coronial staff, other coroners and police officers to provide coronial services in Queensland.

We are supported by mortuary and administration teams and other specialists who provide medical services such as histology, forensic dentistry, neuropathology, disaster victim identification and post-mortem CT-scanning services. We can provide advice on mortuary practices and the operation of anatomy schools and propose amendments to medico-legal legislation.
