Roles of pathology and forensic pathology in practice


Siniša Franjić

Pathology is a part of medical science which through theory and in practice, studies diseases, flaws, abnormalities and dysfunctions that can affect a healthy organism. As part of medical practice, pathology deals with the study and diagnosis of structural and functional changes in cells, tissues and organs affected by certain types of disease. In addition, pathologists are often involved in dealing with certain situations in criminal and civil proceedings in courts. The most common situations studied by pathologists and forensic pathologists are injuries and sudden deaths. Their findings and opinions very often depend on the further course of criminal or civil proceedings in court.
