Head injuries may not be detected in some abused children - Head injuries in some abused babies may not be detected by doctors because certain screening tests aren't routinely performed, researchers report. Their study involved 51 children under the age of 2 who were admitted to a hospital with suspected abuse injuries, such as rib fractures or facial bruising, but -no signs or symptoms of head injury. When they underwent detailed CT or MRI head scans, 19 were found to have head injuries, including skull fractures, brain injuries or scalp swelling. A standard x-ray of the skull would have missed five of those 19 cases, according to results published in the June issue of Pediatrics -- Pediatrics 2003;111:1382-1386
