What tests should be ordered for children suspected of suffering child abuse injuries?

The healthcare provider that suspects a child may have injuries consistent with non-accidental trauma should consider ordering a CT and/or MRI of the head, skeletal survey, genital and skin examination, head-to-toe physical examination with documentation of growth parameters, liver and pancreatic enzyme levels, urinalysis, complete blood count, clotting studies, dentistry and ophthalmological consultation and imaging studies of the chest/abdomen and pelvis.
