Autopsies can help tell a story about the dead

Galveston County Daily News, April 28, 2010

“It’s amazing how autopsies tell a story and help the living,” writes UTMB autopsy supervisor Judy Smith in a guest column. “Autopsies can determine the exact cause of death and give closure to the family. We uncover genetic diseases that may affect relatives and answer questions for families. The patient’s physicians learn from the autopsy, so they can understand the disease and improve treatment for the next patient.”
