Grantee in the News: Anthony Rosen's research on Sensitizing Radiologists on Signs of Elder Abuse View MoreBACK

The December 2016 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) featured new research co-authored by 2007 MSTAR scholar and 2016 Beeson Scholar Anthony Rosen, MD.

In “Radiologists' Training, Experience, and Attitudes About Elder Abuse Detection,” Rosen and his co-authors explore how radiologists can be better trained to detect signs of detect elder abuse.

The study was picked up in a related article on PsychCentral.com, where Rosen notes:

“Radiologists are a core part of the medical team in child abuse cases, so why shouldn’t they be a core part of the team in elder abuse?” Rosen also notes that one important obstacle to this training, however, is the lack of research examining injury patterns in elder abuse. And making the situation even more complicated is that it is much more difficult overall to detect abuse in elderly people than it is in children.
