In all cases where an autopsy is performed, the medical examiner will retain a small piece of tissue for histological study, and occasionally a whole organ may be retained for pathological examination. If the next-of-kin desires to have retained tissues returned to the funeral home after all testing is complete, it will be necessary to contact the medical examiner’s office to make that request.
