Disaster Victim Identification
IAFR organises training and coordinates radiography response teams internationally for DVI
Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) is a multi-professional act of identifying the victims of natural or man-made mass fatality incidents.
The IAFR are able to provide a national team of radiographers with accredited training and experience in forensic and mass fatality radiography. Currently the UK has an established team working with the UK National Disaster Victim Identification Team. We are also working on launching teams for other countries.
The team will provide a coordinated forensic radiography response to mass fatality incidents and advise national, regional and local authorities on radiography issues when planning for such incidents.
