Digital Kazakhstan Program: Digital Morgue and Virtual Autopsy

World experience shows that traditional methods in many sectors of the economy are becoming a thing of the past, and digital technologies are taking their place. And the forensic service was no exception. A year and a half of a pandemic, various kinds of emergencies and man-made disasters show that human resources are not unlimited and not omnipotent, unlike technology. Kazakhstan can and should follow advanced technologies in all spheres, including where a person’s life ends.

The editors of the Liter.kz website spoke with an expert in the field of forensic medicine, candidate of medical sciences Arman Akhanbekov, who told how this service works and why it is vital for the country to purchase innovative equipment for this area. Arman Aralbaevich shared, last year in Kazakhstan in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, commissions were created to study lethal outcomes. The relatives waited for the body for a very long time, many questions arose about the conclusions – where the coronavirus caused death, where it was recognized as a concomitant disease. Now there is information that new equipment will come to the country. As I understand it, this will be a kind of breakthrough in forensic medical examination.
