Familial DNA searching (sometimes referred to as familial DNA or familial DNA database searching) is the practice of creating new investigative leads in cases where DNA evidence found at the scene of a crime (forensic profile) strongly resembles that of an existing DNA profile (offender profile) in a state DNA database but there is not an exact match.[41][42] After all other leads have been exhausted, investigators may use specially developed software to compare the forensic profile to all profiles taken from a states DNA database to generate a list of those offenders already in the database who are most likely to be a very close relative of the individual whose DNA is in the forensic profile.[43] To eliminate the majority of this list when the forensic DNA is a mans, crime lab technicians conduct Y-STR analysis. Using standard investigative techniques, authorities are then able to build a family tree. The family tree is populated from information gathered from public records and criminal ...
In recent years, US-guided percutaneous biopsy has emerged as one of the main investigative techniques to obtain histopathological specimens from chest lesions (7). Increasingly, it is becoming the first-choice investigation in chest lesions because of its advantages of procedural simplicity, safety and effectiveness, without the risk of exposure to ionizing radiation (5,6) Despite its high success rate and fewer complications, conventional US has certain limitations in the preoperative evaluation of chest lesions and the design of the puncture path (7). For example, although conventional 2D US can recognize liquefaction within lesions, it may only poorly identify necrotic and un-liquified tissues (7). In addition, although CDFI can broadly observe lesion vascularity, it has low sensitivity and the results of the observation are easily influenced by numerous factors, including the angle between the sound wave and the blood vessel, false negative readings by slow blood flow and noise interference ...
AD and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are neurodegenerative diseases typified by the insidious onset and gradual progression of cognitive impairment. In both instances, the diagnosis can be confirmed only by histologic examination of brain tissue and observation of the characteristic neuropathologic changes that are associated with each disease. Although current in vivo investigative techniques are unable to visualize directly these pathologic changes, it is possible to detect by neuroimaging the cerebral atrophy that occurs as a consequence of the pathologic processes, and this has led to the utilization of measures of brain atrophy as biomarkers in the evaluation of dementia.. MRI has emerged as a useful neuroimaging tool in the investigation of AD on account of its relative safety and tolerability and its ability to delineate individual structures within the brain. The reduction in total brain volume that occurs in AD is difficult to estimate with confidence on a single scan because of the ...
The Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) is responsible for the identification, investigation and prosecution of major drug trafficking organizations. To accomplish this mission, the OCDETF employs case acceptance criteria that are likely to result in the identification of links to major drug trafficking organizations. Once the organizations are identified, the Task Force uses the most sophisticated investigative techniques available such as pen registers, cell phone tracking and global positioning systems, as well as the extensive use of the grand jury, search warrants and wire interceptions. Money laundering charges and asset forfeiture are widely used by OCDETF ...

PHOENIX, AZ (May 7, 2013) - A prolific thief who broke into homes by smashing doors and windows with a rock faces the prospect of spending the rest of his life behind bars after pleading guilty today in the second of two criminal cases brought against him. Robert James Neese (D.O.B. 3/15/1953), whose modus operandi earned him the moniker rock burglar, was also previously convicted in a separate case on eight counts of Burglary and seven counts of Theft last April. He faces a maximum sentence in excess of two hundred years in prison when he is sentenced by the Honorable Pamela Svoboda on May 21, 2013.. Thanks to a combination of skilled investigatory techniques and diligent prosecution, this criminal has been brought to justice and will no longer be free to victimize members of our community, remarked Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. We now look forward to the imposition of an appropriate sentence that will hold this defendant accountable for the extensive harm he has caused, he ...
Toxic torts assert that exposure to a given agent is responsible for physical or psychological effects in the claimant. Yet the claim often arises well after a person may be tested for exposure. The Forensic Panel s expertise includes a familiarity with the range of chemicals and toxins and how they present, in history, signs and symptoms, when exposure has occurred.. A forensic toxicologist must examine the probability of harmful effects of the environment on a person. Important features include time-related aspects of the exposure and the dosage of pollutants with which a person may come into contact.. Environmental forensics uses classical analytical chemistry tools with investigative techniques in interpretation to identify the source of environmental contaminants as well as the approximate amount of time that contaminants were released. These cases require careful consideration about the available data on causation, and an awareness of what physical effects link more directly to which ...

Interferometry is a family of techniques in which waves, usually electromagnetic waves, are superimposed causing the phenomenon of interference in order to extract information. Interferometry is an important investigative technique in the fields of astronomy, fiber optics, engineering metrology, optical metrology, oceanography, seismology, spectroscopy (and its applications to chemistry), quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, plasma physics, remote sensing, biomolecular interactions, surface profiling, microfluidics, mechanical stress/strain measurement, velocimetry, and optometry. Interferometers are widely used in science and industry for the measurement of small displacements, refractive index changes and surface irregularities. In an interferometer, light from a single source is split into two beams that travel different optical paths, then combined again to produce interference. The resulting interference fringes give information about the difference in optical path length. In ...
