This article presents the outcome of the first international forensic radiology imaging research summit, organized by the International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, the International Association of Forensic Radiographers, the National Institute of Justice of the United States of America, and the Netherlands Forensic Institute.
During this meeting, an international and multidisciplinary panel of forensic scientists discussed the current state of science in forensic radiology, and drafted a research agenda to further advance the field. Four groups for further research focus were identified: big data and statistics, identification and biological profiling, multimodel imaging, and visualization and presentation. This article describes each of these research topics and thereby hopes to contribute to the development of this exciting new field of forensic medical science. (Publisher abstract modified)
