Signs of child abuse : A literature review about radiological findings that might indicate child abuse (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Kunskapen om barnmisshandel hos vårdpersonal har börjat kritiseras i Sverige. Röntgensjuksköterskan är skyldig att rapportera vid misstänkt barnmisshandel och behöver därför kunna identifiera dessa fall.

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva radiologiska fynd som kan indikera barnmisshandel.

Metod: Studierna i denna litteraturstudie kvalitetsgranskades, analyserades och bearbetades för att sammanställa ett resultat. Tio kvantitativa studier ingick i resultatet för litteraturstudien. PubMed och CINAHL användes som sökdatabaser.

Resultat: Resultatet presenterades i tre kategorier: hjärnskador och blödningar, frakturer och ligamentskador.

Konklusion: Vanliga radiologiska fynd som kan indikera barnmisshandel är subduralblödningar, revbensfrakturer och rörbensfrakturer. Vidare forskning bör utföras för att undersöka prevalensen av frakturer i händer och fötter samt ligamentskador i halsryggen vid misstänkt barnmisshandel.

Abstract [en]

Background: Swedish health care professionals’ knowledge about child abuse has lately been criticized. The radiographer is obligated to report on suspected child abuse and therefore needs to be able to identify these cases.

Aim: The aim was to describe radiological findings that might indicate child abuse.

Method: The studies in this literature review were quality assessed, analyzed and processed to compile the results. The results consisted of ten quantitative studies. PubMed and CINAHL were used as search databases.

Results: The results were presented in three categories: brain injuries and hemorrhages, fractures and ligamentous injuries.

Conclusion: Common radiological findings that might indicate child abuse are subdural hemorrhages, rib fractures and long bone fractures. Continued research should be conducted to investigate the prevalence of fractures in hands and feet, and also ligamentous injuries of the cervical spine in suspected child abuse.
