Helpful recommendations are made concerning interpretation of the obtained radiological images, which will allow readers to start their own work in the field of post-mortem angiography or to ease and improve their practice. The atlas has been edited and written by members of an international working group created in 2012, Technical Working Group Post-mortem Angiography Methods (TWGPAM), who for the first time summarize their experiences concerning this new approach.
