In the field of forensic science, an autopsy, usually referred to as a postmortem examination, is an invasive technique performed to determine the cause and manner of death after a death has happened. Technology improvements have given rise to a new term, "virtopsy," which describes a virtual autopsy that makes use of imaging methods like computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. It entails scans of dead bodies that are hardly obtrusive. It is a great substitute for a traditional autopsy since it provides a complete examination of the entire body in less time, helps with diagnosis, and takes religious considerations into account. The approach provides more precise, sensitive, and instinctive court evidence for fractures, soft tissue injuries, organ damage, and wound extent. This review article will address the usefulness of "Virtopsy" in the field of forensic science and its possible use in forensic crime investigations.

Keywords : Autopsy, Virtopsy, Radiology, Forensic, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
