Event Overview
Welcome message:

The International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging was formed in 2012 with the aim of strengthening and developing the field of forensic radiology and imaging worldwide. This includes promoting best practice and developing international quality standards and guidelines in this field of imaging. Specific objectives of the Society are to:

  • Strengthen and develop the field of forensic radiology and imaging.
  • Promote best practice in forensic radiology and imaging through communication and co-operation.
  • Promote education and specialisation in the field of forensic radiology and imaging.
  • Encourage and develop research programs in forensic radiology and imaging.
  • Establish quality standards and guidelines for forensic radiology and imaging.
  • Establish processes for the regulation and certification of forensic radiology and associated imaging sciences.
  • Provide a journal for the members of the society.

The ISFRI has an annual conference which is hosted by the outgoing Chair of the Society. In 2014 Professor Guy Rutty of the East Midlands Forensic Pathology Unit will become the Chair of the Society. Thus in May 2015 the University of Leicester will host the fourth ISFRI international conference. This coincides with the tenth Anniversary of the International Association of Forensic Radiographers (IAFR), of which Professor Rutty was a founding Associate Member.

As the IAFR are associate members of the ISFRI the two organisations will come together for a joint meeting in Leicester. The meeting will look to forge working relationships between all those engaged in post-mortem imaging of all types through invited talks, member presentations, seminars and workshops.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

The organising committee invites members and non-members to offer paper(s) for presentation at the Fourth Congress of the International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI) in May 2015.

Abstracts are invited relating to the focus of the meeting ‘the role of radiology in human identification and trauma investigation’, but abstracts relating to all aspects of imaging in post-mortem or forensic investigation will be considered.

Abstracts that have been presented or published previously may be submitted for consideration provided that this is a substantially different audience, or there are new or updated methods or findings.

There is no fee for making a submission. If your submission is accepted for presentation then you will be required to attend the Conference and pay the standard registration fee for the day of your presentation.

The abstracts will undergo peer review after which they are accepted or rejected. Accepted abstracts will be either as an oral presentation or as an illustrated poster during the event. The conference chair and committee will then allocate abstracts to conference sessions.

Accepted abstracts will be published prior to the conference in volume 2 of the 2015 Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (JoFRI)

Those selected for poster presentations will be automatically entered into the Congress Poster Prize Competition.

Late breakers

We will accept a small number of late breaker abstracts. Late breaker submissions must be data of unquestioned immediate significance and scientific merit. The percentage of abstracts selected for late breakers will depend on the number of submissions. Authors will have to declare the reason why their abstract is a late breaker. The same submission rules apply for the late breaker abstracts as for the regular abstracts. The late breaker abstract submission will be open from 1 January 2015 to 31 January 2015.
