Interestingly, we just had that debate about a year ago and determined that
there are risks with evidence tampering and jurisdiction issues. Your state

ME or their representative, we have been asked to do nothing to the body.

Nothing formal. We will do post-mortem ultrasounds mostly out of curiosity
and for ISS scoring. Had an unfortunate case of a 10 y.o. cardiac arrest.
Post-mortem bedside ultrasound showed HOCM.
