This updated edition of the leading text on the imaging of child abuse and its imitators combines radiographic images with pathologic correlates of inflicted injuries. Presented in full color for the first time, it contains many new photomicrographs and clinical images of bone scintigraphy, CT, MRI and sonography. Presenting radiologic findings in clinical, biomechanical and medicolegal contexts, a wealth of new material relating to extremity, thoracic, spinal and intracranial injuries is included. Chapters on intracranial (extra-axial and parenchymal), visceral and miscellaneous injuries, and MRI physics have been revised and expanded, while new chapters cover disorders of calcium and phosphorus metabolism and an extended discussion of skeletal injury. Complete with technical discussions explaining the physical principles and instrumentation of imaging equipment, this is essential reading for radiologists, pediatricians, forensic pathologists and emergency room physicians. Additionally, it will be of interest to a wide array of legal professionals.
