A review of 2500 routine post-mortem radiographic examinations of perinates is presented. It is concluded that the procedure is of value in the detection of abnormalities which may have contributed to the death of the perinate and which may have escaped detection at autopsy. The use of contrast agents may assist in the evaluation of congenital abnormalities, especially of the cardiovascular system. Post-mortem radiographic examination may be especially helpful in the evaluation of perinates for whom permission for autopsy is denied. Post-mortem radiography may assist in the gathering of statistical data and may provide useful material for teaching and research.
