Evaluation of drug-endangered children: The yield of toxicology and skeletal survey screening

Sabrie Howell, Laurie Bailey, Jamye Coffman – 2019

However, even with the high association between physical abuse and drug endangerment there is no standard for screening in this population. Skeletal survey screening may facilitate the identification of children in this population who have also been physically abused.
