Using serial neuroimaging studies to identify timing of abusive head trauma in infants
Researchers have categorized the appearance and evolution of abnormalities on neuroimages that represent abusive head trauma (AHT) in infants. Descriptions of these abnormalities are important for narrowing down the timing of AHT, which can aid police in identifying and excluding potential perpetrators. Appearances of various abusive traumatic injuries on cranial CT scans and MRIs at different time points are described and discussed.
