« FDA Warned French Company Founder about Breast Implant Safety Issues | Main | Should Hospitals Begin to Charge a Fee for Autopsies? »


Karl Robstad

As an aside, perhaps charging for autopsies might reduce the number of "unnecessary" autopsies. It's one thing to perform them in cases of sudden death, unclear cause of death or even in cases where the diagnosis is known but is rare or has high educational value; but, in my opinion, it is completely another to do restriction-less dissections of 90+ year-olds with a laundry lists of acronymous chronic diseases and obvious COD's. Simply, if you tell someone something is free, they are likely to want it, regardless of it's actual value. If case selection is more carefully curated, free or not free, I bet virtuotopsies would be embraced.
