This state can only be confirmed by microscopic studies because when you
look at a cat or other scan you can only show what part of the brain has
been replaced by spinal fluid.  I have read of cases where spinal fluid has
compressed the neurons to within an inch of the skull. Yet these people
lived normal lives. Thus the question should be. Have the neurons been
compressed or destroyed. Only microscopic studies can show that.
But once you kill the patient you can only come to one conclusion.
