Retrospective Diagnosis is the diagnosis done after patient’s death. It is also called as Postmortem. This procedure is used to identify the culprit who killed him and how he got killed. This term is used by some clinical pathologist to describe medical diagnosis. This procedure is done secretly and the results are kept confidential and revealed only to the Crime Investigation cops.
A retrospective diagnosis (also retrodiagnosis or posthumous diagnosis) is the practice of identifying an illness after the death of the patient, sometimes in a historical figure using modern knowledge, methods and disease classifications.
