Figure 15: Computed tomography values of brain tissue after death divided into three groups according to the interval from death to computed tomography scan (a. 48–70 min, b. 71–120 min, and c. 121–433 min). Within 70 min of death, the gray matter computed tomography values decreased (cool color) with time; in contrast, the computed tomography values (warm color) that increased with time were observed mainly in the white matter, lenticular nucleus, and thalamus more than 120 min after death[27]
