Abstract

Maintenance of high autopsy rates is associated with specific benefits, especially for clinical practice and for clinical and epidemiologic research. We have compiled and evaluated (on the basis of related costs and benefits) a comprehensive list of recommendations to resurrect the autopsy and reestablish it as a central contributor to medical practice, teaching, and research.
