A scanning service, supported by H M Coroner Leicester City and South, has now been introduced in Leicestershire as an alternative method to diagnose the cause of death.
This service is applicable to adults of all ages and may replace the need for traditional invasive autopsy.
This can be purchased by the family and will be performed within the NHS Hospital.
If you are interested in this service, please speak to the Coroners Officer who will be happy to assist you.
Further information regarding CT scanning is available on the University of Leicester website.
