NEW YORK (Reuters Health) Feb 25 – Conducting diffusion-weighted MRI scans immediately upon admission for suspicion of shaken-baby syndrome (SBS) adds crucial information needed for diagnosis, report investigators, from the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta.

SBS was confirmed in one case that exhibited a normal fundus and 17 that had retinal hemorrhages.
