Summary

The aim of the study is to compare findings generated by computertomography-based autopsy (Virtopsy) with conventional autopsy and clinical diagnoses. Therefore all patients dying while receiving treatment in the Department of Intensive Care Medicine will be undergo virtopsy and, if relatives give informed consent conventional autopsy.
