The autopsy is valuable for its role in undergraduate and graduate medical educ., the identification and characterization of new diseases, and contributions to the understanding of disease pathogenesis. Although extensive, these benefits are difficult to quantify. This systematic review synthesizes the autopsy literature as it relates to 4 key questions: (1) To what extent does the autopsy reveal important diagnoses that were clinically unsuspected prior to death?; (2) To what extent does the autopsy provide a useful performance measure or audit of clinical diagnosis in general?; (3) What impact do autopsy findings have on clinical performance improvement?; and (4) To what extent are vital statistics compromised by low autopsy rates?
