Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Following a few comments regarding the historical development, preliminary definitions and early studies on battered child syndrome, the Authors give an overall clinical semeiological picture, focusing on the anatomo-radiological characteristics of the most common bone and non-bone lesions. In addition traditional (X-ray) and more advanced methods of image diagnosis (ultrasonography, CT, RM) are examined and their utility in the study of the battered child is evaluated.
