Equipment Improves Forensic Investigation Capabilities
Broward County has a new high-speed, full-body, digital X-
ray imaging device, which will increase the speed,
efficiency and accuracy of autopsies, and help forensic
investigators provide more precise information about cause
and manner of death. The District 17 Medical Examiner’s
Office is the first in Florida and one of only 12 forensic
offices in the nation to acquire this state-of-the-art
imaging technology, which can record three different views
of a person’s body in about 15 seconds.
