Abstract: As post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) becomes more routinely utilised in day-to-day autopsy practice around the world it is important that those reporting the images are aware of changes that may not be encountered in clinical radiology that can result in the post-mortem period but resemble antemortem pathology. Two cases are presented to illustrate the PMCT findings of three of the four classical changes that occur to the head after death as a result of the effect of prolonged exposure to heat.
