or medical jurisprudence, as it is also called, is “that sciencewhich teaches the application of every branch of medical knowledge to the purposes ofthe law; hence its limits are, on the one hand, the requirements of the law, and, on theother, the whole range of medicine. Anatomy, physiology, medicine, surgery, chemistry,physics, and botany lend their aid as necessity arises; and in some cases all thesebranches of science are required to enable a court of law to arrive at a proper conclusionon a contested question affecting life or property.” Tayl. Med. Jur. 1.
