Assessment of cranio-encephalic traumas in children by MR

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Different types of CNS lesions are described to facilitate the assessment of cranioencephalic traumas in children by magnetic resonance (MR). The author suggests a distinction between perinatal, accidental and non-accidental traumas, and illustrates the main features of each category. Extracranial lesions, fractures, and intracranial lesions are types of perinatal traumas; fractures, epidural hematomas, subdural hematomas, subarachnoidal hemorrage and parenchimal lesions are caused by accidental traumas; subdural hematoma is the most frequent finding in non-accidental traumas.
