The Epoch Times: Record Low Autopsy Rates in the US: Why It Matters and What It Reveals
The autopsy rate in the US has hit a record low of 7.4% in 2020, the lowest since 1972, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Over the past 50 years, the decline has hindered diagnostic accuracy, limited medical research and public health understanding, impaired legal and forensic investigations, and deprived grieving families of closure. Two reasons for the decline are doctors' reluctance to order autopsies and the lack of reimbursement for pathologists. Autopsies have long been regarded as the gold standard in investigating the cause of death, accurately determining the cause and manner in most cases. They remain essential in medical education and quality assurance within hospitals and hold immense importance for families when questions or doubts arise regarding a loved one's death.
