An Infovalley staff member shows the digital autopsy forensic application, which possesses three-dimensional capabilities to view and dissect the digital body in high definition visuals, at the company's office in Kuala Lumpur June 13, 2013. Malaysian entrepreneur Mathavan Chandran wants to revive the moribund post-mortem by replacing the scalpel with a scanner and the autopsy slab with a touchscreen computer. Infovalley's iGene 3D imaging software is, Chandran says, the first to package the autopsy process and offer it commercially as a suite of services that stretches from the moment of death to the delivery of a post-mortem report.

British citizen Melissa Reid (front C) and Belfast resident Michaella McCollum Connolly (back C) are escorted by police after leaving the public prosecutor's office at Callao, August 20, 2013. McCollum Connolly and Reid were detained in Lima last week, accused of trying to smuggle millions of dollars worth of cocaine to Europe. The two women have protested their innocence, saying they were forced to carry items in their luggage at gunpoint. Peruvian officials say the two women were en route to Madrid and Majorca on August 6 when airport officials discovered almost 12 kilos (26 lbs) of cocaine hidden inside food packages in their luggage. The cocaine was said to have a street value of some two million U.S. dollars. REUTERS/Mariana Bazo (PERU - Tags: CRIME LAW DRUGS SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Professor Karl Oldhafer, chief physician of general and visceral surgery at the Asklepios Hospital Hamburg-Barmbek, performs liver surgery, one of the first surgeries of its kind in Germany with the support of a tablet computer to access and visualize planning data, August 15, 2013. The tablet computer uses augmented reality, which allows the liver to be filmed with an iPad and overlaid during an operation with virtual 3D models reconstructed from the real organ. Developed by Fraunhofer MEVIS in Bremen, this procedure helps locate critical structures such as tumors and vessels and is expected to improve the quality of transferring pre-operational resection plans into actual surgery.

A resident walks with a child in front of the Jinan Intermediate People's Court building, where the trial of disgraced Chinese politician Bo Xilai will be held in Jinan, Shandong province August 21, 2013. The trial of ousted Chinese politician Bo Xilai will be televised live to reporters in eastern China, a Hong Kong-based broadcaster said, a landmark move by authorities to appear transparent as they put a lid on the country's biggest political scandal in decades. Bo, 64, is set to appear in public for the first time in 17 months in a court in the eastern city of Jinan in Shandong province, capping the country's biggest political scandal since the 1976 downfall of the Gang of Four at the end of the Cultural Revolution.
