The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) and the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) have jointly published a document that sets out important guidance on investigating suspected non-accidental injury (NAI) in children. The document, 'Standards for Radiological Investigations of Suspected Non-accidental Injury' brings together the latest guidance and recommendations on how to proceed in these cases and aims to ensure that all healthcare professionals involved in child protection are suitably supported.

Research shows that, amongst the different forms of injury in childhood, non-accidental injury is relatively common. This document sets out to ensure that radiologists and paediatricians are assisted and supported in offering the best standards of protection and care to children who might be required to undergo examination for suspected NAI.

'Standards for Radiological Investigations of Suspected Non-accidental Injury' is available online.
