Project summary

The aim of this pilot project is to develop a proof of concept for a pedestrian trauma database. This would support A&E departments at the accident site, law enforcement in pedestrian accident scenarios and the design of future safer vehicles. The project will also investigate the opportunity of performing novel virtual Post Mortem using CT-Scans, which will improve PM accuracy and benefit grieving families by reducing the duration of the coronal process.
