Digital forensics deals with the acquisition, preservation, analysis and presentation of electronic data. The detailed documentation and analysis of human data with 3D-imaging and processing techniques has led to qualitative improvements in forensic pathologic investigation and documentation.
Digital Forensics for the Health Sciences: Applications in Practice and Research discusses current applications of digital forensics in health sciences as well as the latest research in this area. This reference work covers basic concepts, best practices, common techniques, investigative challenges and, most importantly, examines the major limitations of current tools and discusses approaches that may help investigators deal with the ever-increasing size and complexity of forensic targets.
