Overview

Provides over 700 large radiographs related to clinical forensic medicine and the detection of concealed arms, explosives, and other weapons Includes brief introductory comments for each chapter, detailed captions, and abridged case reports Presents the latest modalities for evaluation and identification of victims, including computed tomography Includes more than 30 full-color photos and specimens with virtual autopsy radiographs from MRI and Multi-Slice Computed Tomography (MSCT) Shows current uses of imaging for security purposes Deals with some of the tools and methods employed in terrorism, with emphasis on the radiologic evaluation of its immediate effects on the human body Illustrates the scope of radiology applications in the investigation and interpretation of gunshot wounds Provides insight into mutilation practices accepted in some geographic regions Allows for quick reference in cases of child abuse, police brutality, starvation, and other results of trauma The results of aggression against humans can be hideously obvious, but may also be entirely concealed from casual inspection. Often, only exploration of the hidden recesses of the mind via psychiatric evaluation, or radiologic exploration of the inner recesses of the body can reveal the evidence of such violence. This book focuses on the latter. A Radiologic Atlas of Abuse, Torture, Terrorism, and Inflicted Trauma combines the lifetime experience of two distinguished radiologists and a renowned odontologist to provide an unprecedented collection of radiographs depicting the results of violence on the human body. Victims of aggression range from the tiniest infant to entire populations. Hopefully you will never encounter every situation covered in this book. However, should you come across any, you will want A Radiologic Atlas of Abuse, Torture, Terrorism, and Inflicted Trauma within reach.
