The New Mexico Decedent Image Database Webinar Series

Overview

The New Mexico Decedent Image Database (NMDID) is a new resource for research in any field that can draw on computed tomography scans of humans. The database contains de-identified scans of over 15,000 individuals; all were deceased at the time of scanning. Nearly all images are of complete individuals. The scans are supplemented by up to 69 in-depth metadata variables. These include basic demographic and descriptive information, such as sex, age at death, and cause and manner of death. Additional data may include occupation, hobbies, drinking, smoking, drug use, and many other lifestyle variables.
