Elsevier announces the launch of a new journal: Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging
Date:2/11/2013

Amsterdam, February 11, 2013 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces the launch of Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (JOFRI), the official new journal of the International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI).

As a first journal in the field of forensic radiology and imaging, JOFRI aims to provide a cutting edge communication and information platform for professionals engaged in developing and utilizing two and three-dimensional imaging and reconstruction methods to advance documentation and analysis of forensic findings and crime scene reconstruction. Research published in JOFRI brings together both radiology/imaging and forensic science disciplines; original research, review articles, technical notes, brief communications, and case studies will all be included in the journal.

Topics covered in Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging are:

  • Use of radiology in clinical (living persons) and postmortem forensics, correlation studies of traditional autopsy compared to virtual radiological autopsy
  • Cutting edge forensic imaging techniques for research and daily service
  • Use of 3D imaging in crime scene reconstruction, blood splatter pattern analysis, and traffic accident reconstructions; evaluation and validation of techniques in forensic 3D and radiological scanning
  • Using imaging techniques in anthropological studies, bite mark, other pattern injuries and forensic art work analyses, and mass casualties

Michael J. Thali, M.D., Director of the Institute of Forensic Medicine, University of Zurich, will lead the journal as Founding Editor-in-Chief, combining his expertise in radiology and forensic medicine. Introducing the journal, he said, "To date, papers on forensic imaging were published in journals dedicated to forensic sciences or radiology. The increasing use of imaging technologies raises fundamental questions regarding quality standards, education and best practice in the field of forensic radiology and imaging. JOFRI will be an important forum to advance these critical issues."

"The launch of JOFRI is especially timely as the use of imaging in forensic investigation is growing both as an alternative and adjunct to traditional autopsy," said David Sampson, Executive Publisher at Elsevier. "Virtual autopsy is particularly useful when a traditional autopsy is not permitted for cultural or religious reasons and in mass casualty situations."
