English term or phrase:gross necropsy
I need a translation and an explanation of the term, and in particular, which is the difference between "necropsy" and "gross necropsy". Thanks.
Explanation: "NECROPSY, POSTMORTEM, or POSTMORTEM EXAMINATION, dissection and examination of a dead body and its organs and structures to determine the cause of death, to observe the effects of disease, and to establish the sequences of changes and thus establish evolution and mechanisms of disease processes."
"Gross necropsy" is one with the naked eye.
