Purpose of Autopsy
The prime aim is to determine of the cause of death, the condition of health of the person before he or she died, and whether any medical diagnosis and treatment before death was appropriate.
Autopsies may be carried out for the purposes of teaching or medical research when a person has given permission in advance of their death, Cases of sudden death, where a doctor is not able to write a death certificate, or when death is believed to result from an unnatural cause warrant autopsy. Such an autopsy is legal and performed under a legal authority; the consent of relatives of the deceased is not required.
