Abstract [en]

Reports of suspected child abuse has increased in Sweden in recent years. Young children are particularly vulnerable to shaking and violence against the head. Internal injuries after head trauma caused by child abuse can be axonal injury, intracranial hemorrhage, increased intracranial pressure and ischemia. The radiological modalities computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MRI) have crucial diagnostic significance at head trauma and suspected child abuse. The overall purpose of this study was to investigate the acute injuries that can occur within the brain in suspected child abuse. And to determine the diagnostic significance of the two modalities CT and MRI have in the context and how the methods differ. A systematic literature rewiev of scientific articles have been taken from three databases, ProQuest, Cinahl and PubMed. All articles that met the purpose and research questions were collected. The material quality was examined and processed in order to then be compiled. Literature Study results showed that DT of children’s brain must be done first, in order to identify any acute brain injuries. MRI is complementary after the acute phase. MRI can detect brain lesions injuries which were not detected by CT. CT with a MRI complement is the best way to establish injuries in children who has been abused with suspect intracranial injuries.
