About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Covers the physical basis for imaging studies, explaining how images are generated in radiography, CT and MRI
    • Hundreds of radiographic and photographic images are displayed side-by-side, many in color, giving the reader clear examples for use in diagnosis
    • Provides analysis of the legal issues faced by professionals involved in cases of alleged abuse, allowing them to understand their responsibilities and prepare for court testimonials

    "Much has changed in the field and an update was sorely needed. This edition was worth the wait. It is a superlative text covering nearly all facets of child abuse. Topics are discussed in great depth. The images are excellent and cover a wide range of modalities. This is a simply a must have text in every pediatric radiology reading room in the world and belongs on the bookshelf of every health care professional in the field of child abuse."
    Jerry R. Dwek, Pediatric Radiology
