How Radiology Can Help Uncover Evidence Of Domestic Abuse, Sexual Assault

The study was presented on November 27, 2017 at RSNA’s annual meeting with the hopes that more radiologists will understand that medical imaging can indicate preexisting clues about abuse. The study’s lead investigator, Bharti Khurana, MD, emergency radiology fellowship program director at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, was inspired to conduct the research while identifying patterns of recurrent injury on a young woman who came to the hospital’s emergency department with an acute nose fracture overlying an old fracture. Khurana contacted emergency staff physicians and colleagues to better approach the case from a clinical and social angle.
