Abstract

This chapter presents the different imaging diagnosis of non-accidental trauma, with particular emphasis on the skeletal survey. The different fracture patterns related to non-accidental trauma are then reviewed, including high-, moderate-, and low-specificity lesions. Fracture aging is also presented. Finally, mimics of non-accidental trauma are discussed, with more detailed presentation of osteogenesis imperfecta and rickets.
