In this essay we intent to provide the reader with a theoretical and practical approach to the topic of the medical images and their application in Costarican medico legal context. It aboards the subject from its nature and how, since the beginning, their accelerated growth and performance in the equipment and techniques in x-ray exploration, require expertise and constant training, both of which the Costa Rican Legal Medicine Department has since its foundation in 1965,counting on the diagnostic help be that x-rays provide to forensic medicine.

Keywords : forensic radiology; radiological images; medical images; expertise; capacitating.
