BT: Scanners employed to catalogue knife wounds

BT: Scanners employed to catalogue knife wounds. “High-tech scanners are being used to create a ‘catalogue’ of knife wounds that can be matched to different blades. Detectives say the database will mean they can identify what kind of knife has been used in a stabbing, making it easier to catch criminals. The method involves using state of the art CT scanning technology like that seen in hospitals, to create an image of the injury which can then be saved and stored.”
