Research implications

Further research is needed:

  • To determine the added value of a radionuclide imaging (RNI) in addition to a current standard (21 view) skeletal survey (SS)
  • To determine the relative value of RNI versus repeat SS as a complimentary investigation to an initial SS
  • To assess the role of radiological screening of disabled children with suspected abuse
