Assessment of Abuse

Child abuse and mistreatment claims affect parental rights and custody determinations. However absent documentation and medical care may be, evidence for old injury attributable to child abuse may be difficult to come by, absent the indelible evidence of a fracture. The effects of repeated head trauma may manifest on neuroimaging study.

The challenge to an expert neuroradiologist is to discern a nonspecific finding, or a normal variant, from an abuse or destructive domestic environment. The sage expertise of neuroradiologists from The Forensic Panel imbue our evaluations with just the right mix of caution and decisiveness. Peer-review, originated and practiced in The Forensic Panel, is particularly well suited to these evaluations, ensuring The Forensic Panelís conclusions minimize bias and reflect diligent consideration of all pertinent evidence available.
