Promoting Best Practice in Forensic Radiography
The International Association of Forensic Radiographers
Welcome to the new website of IAFR!
The International Association of Forensic Radiographers aims to promote best practice in forensic radiography through education and training, research, communication and coordination of forensic radiography.
IAFR offers Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in Forensic Radiography. IAFR and its branches provide webinars regularly.
IAFR organises professional training for Forensic Radiographers. We are currently building an e-learning platform, to allow location independent training.
IAFR promotes research of Forensic Radiography. We work together with the International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI) to publish the Forensic Imaging Journal.
Forensic Radiography is the field of imaging, which provides medico-legal evidence in the means of radiography, cross-sectional imaging, surface scanning, photogrammetry and other modalities.
Imaging of deceased can offer important information about cause of the death and identity.
Forensic Human Identification
Identifying deceased or living individuals can benefit from dental and other imaging.
Modern DVI teams may use mobile CT units on location to speed up the process.
Imaging of SPA of children or vulnerable adults is common practice in many hospitals.
Finding intracorporeal illegal substances often requires imaging of the suspect.
Imaging is part of the age assessment of the asylum seekers who's age is unclear.
Imaging can be used to investigate archaeological findings such as mummified remains.
Forensic radiographers work closely with police forces, forensic anthropologists, pathologists and other professionals.
The IAFR can offer you guidance, shared experience, networking, collective knowledge, training, education, group support, information, protocol development, procedures, and research opportunities.
