My name is Gabriela Kurkowski and I am in my second semester of the Radiology Program at LCC. Follow along with me as I discuss forensic science and the important role that x-ray plays in this system.

Wow, what an interesting field of study you’ve chosen. As a biology major, a have always been interested in science and radiology is especially interesting. I think it is crazy we have developed ways of seeing our bones and using that information in a variety of ways. I think it is crazy how much information we are able to learn about somebody based off of a single x-ray, like age, gender, and potentially their identity. I found this to be a really interesting presentation with great visuals and examples, thank you, Gabriela.

This was so interesting! I am so glad we did this since I did not get to watch this in my lab class. I never knew x-ray was so significant to forensic science, especially with identifying and dating the death!

I find it so interesting that they can find out so much information based off an x-ray. I wonder if x-ray imaging is standard practice before an autopsy or not. I thought your presentation was great!

Interesting topic, along with all the images. I like how you explained the correlation between x-ray and putting the pieces together to solve a crime. It is interesting to learn about the process and another field for a radiologic technologist to pursue. Anthropology puts a whole new twist on x-ray imaging and you explained it well. Great work Gabriela!

Cool topic Gabriela! I never really though about using x-rays in this way. Super interesting that they can be used to identify bodies. I also like that you added that x-rays can be useful during autopsies before the body is cut open. You did a great job presenting this!

I think I would like to work in this field! It would be so interesting and rewarding to potentially help solve cases!! You did a wonderful job on your presentation and I actually did learn a lot.

Hi! Great presentation! I really like how you brought us into the world of forensic science and how x-rays can be used to help discover what happened to somebody before they died. I think some people would find this creepy and weird but you made it so fun and interesting.

I really enjoyed listening to your presentation! This topic has always been something I’ve been interested in and I’m really glad you went into further detail of how it all works! There are a few things that stood out to me during your presentation such as how forensic science and forensic medicine go hand in hand. I like that you took the time to discuss each image on your slides, how anatomy can identify a person, and how x-ray is utilized to determined cause of death. Overall great job! 🙂

Gabriella, great presentation! I appreciate you are keeping this at a level for general understanding, while clearly explaining the technical aspects.

I really liked your project. The presentation was great. I really liked the amount of pictures and descriptions you put in! I liked the bullet points! Forensic Science is really interesting to me. Crime scenes are really something else. But great job once again. This was one of my favorite presentations on here!
