A Radiologic Atlas of Abuse, Torture, Terrorism, and Inflicted Trauma

Front Cover
CRC Press, Feb 27, 2003 - Law - 328 pages
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.
