Wanted to be the first technician on a cranial autopsy
The principles and practice of embalming

Examination of all the head and before the incision
Cavities might allow
Blood to escape through the veins causing change
To the original condition of the brain

An incision, is first made through,
the scalp flaps and in line with the skull,
a double V shaped, cut is then made,
by sawing through, the bones of the skull


Open the skull
Dura is spilt
The brain is removed
For examination
By cutting it loose
With a long bladed knife
Tightly ligate
The ends of the veins
Drill a small hole
Through the back of the skull
Puncture the scalp
Insert through this hole
A section of tubing
To be used as a drain
Hold this in place
With a safety pin inside the…



Since it is physically imposible
To prevent all leakage in to the skull
We have developed a procedure which eliminate problems
If offers the hope that, what was required to fix the head is gone


There's no frustration to show our work once it's strengthened

Drill and wire the calvarium to the skull on both sides
Twist the wires tightly so the skull will be unable to slip

No autopsy may be made unless authority has been secured
Coroner may order an autopsy to seek cause of death
Or if the causeof his death is not yet apparent

An incision, is first made through,
the scalp flaps and in line with the skull,
a double V shaped, cut is then made,
by sawing through, the bones of the skull.
