Pending Toxicology Conference

In cases where the cause of death is not obvious, and determinations have been put on hold pending the results of toxicological testing, the toxicologist and pathologist together review the investigation, autopsy, and toxicology results. When both are satisfied that the toxicology results answer the questions pertinent to the case, a final toxicology report is issued. The need for communication and teamwork for an effective system cannot be overemphasized.1-5,223,224 Refer to Figure 4.3 summarizing the analytic strategies for drug screening in "pending tox cases."
