This review will be set within a broad ranging context in which no specific geographical setting or location be that rural or urban will be stipulated. This is essential in reflecting the extensive remit in which forensic imaging may occur globally and in terms of setting i.e. a hospital, airport, makeshift facility following a mass fatality incident, or mortuary. Contextual consideration of available facilities and staffing composition in conjunction with the timing (day or night) of when forensic imaging is undertaken will be encompassed within this review.
