Abstract

Childhood trauma is a common problem in pediatrics and requires rapid, complete, and accurate diagnosis. In some instances the diagnosis can be made from the history and physical examination and no further diagnostic studies are needed. However, it is frequently necessary to have additional information, and imaging studies provide the best way to gain this knowledge. This book is intended to cover, in one volume, the use of the various imaging modalities available to the radiologist for the proper assessment of childhood trauma and to present the radiological findings which allow the proper diagnosis to be made. The plan of management is often developed from these procedures.
