Main Description
Abusive Head Trauma in Infants and Children combines all aspects of abusive head trauma cases into one complete reference for clinicians, investigators, prosecutors, and social workers. The text details the application of medical science to the investigation and prosecution of these cases, as well as issues of long-term outcome, developmental and educational needs, and strategies for community-based education and prevention. This single-volume edition combines the best clinical writing with high-quality photographic content found in color atlases -- a wealth of knowledge bound in one concise edition. More than 600 clinical photographs illustrate inflicted child head injuries with case studies and multidisciplinary analyses, including discussions of shaken baby syndrome, shaken impact syndrome, differential diagnoses, forensic analysis, autopsies, prosecutorial issues, long-term care of survivors, and the role of social services. The Abusive Head Trauma CD-ROM depicts how head injuries occur using 3-D images and animation developed from actual forensic analysis of victimized children. This product is valuable for explaining the complex biomechanics of abusive head injury to investigators and mandated reporters. Lessen confusion by learning what is and is not shaken baby syndrome with exacting animations developed by an objective and esteemed pathologist.
