Inflicted or non-accidental central nervous system (CNS) injury compromises a constellation of injuries to the pediatric brain and spine resulting from direct or indirect forces acting on the cranium and spine and the intracranial and intrathecal components. The recognition of inflicted injury has significantly improved over the past years. Imaging plays a major role in the early and specific detection and documentation of inflicted physical injury. Inflicted injuries can involve any body part and cover every type of injury (e.g., fractures, organ injuries, thermal injuries).
