Computed tomography (CT) is widely used in postmortem investigations as an adjunct to the traditional autopsy in forensic medicine. To date, several studies have described postmortem CT findings as being caused by normal postmortem changes. However, on interpretation, postmortem CT findings that are seemingly due to normal postmortem changes initially, may not have been mere postmortem artifacts. In this pictorial essay, we describe the common postmortem CT findings in cases of atraumatic in-hospital death and describe the diagnostic pitfalls of normal postmortem changes that can mimic real pathologic lesions.

1) We found that students of the Graduate Entry Program (GEP) had the will to realize the aim of the recruitment but did not think highly of the GEP and were not highly motivated to contribute to medicine, the school, or the region. These findings reflect their low self-evaluation and their lack of real activities. <br>2) The GEP students had various proposals about the recruitment and examination methods of the GEP. Most proposals request clarification of how the program fits into the university's future goals.<br>3) Many GEP students foresaw that 5 to 10 years would be needed to distinguish themselves to from non-GEP students. At that time, more extensive research on GEP should be conducted.
