Limitations of review findings

Radiological investigations varied over the course of this review but, when MRI was performed, it yielded additional information to CT / plain film

 

There is a lack of large scale comparative literature to delineate the difference in spinal injuries from abusive and non-abusive mechanisms

 

With increasing use of MRI, more injuries are being detected, however the imaging sequences selected by authors vary from one study to another
