Radiologists Detect Injury Patterns Of Intimate Partner Violence

 

Radiology images can reveal critical clues not only about a patient’s current injuries, but also about patterns of violence a person may be experiencing. Investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital present data today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) from a study that reveals new ways that radiologists can be involved in the care of victims of intimate partner violence (IPV). The team found common clinical and radiologic patterns that could alert radiologists of potential IPV, to spark a conversation with the referring physician and multi-disciplinary care team to get patients the help they need.
