Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Objectivity, reproducibility and non-invasiveness are required for a medico-legal evaluation of skin lesions in torture victims. In this report we describe the use of the high-frequency method for imaging of scars presumed to be inflicted by torturing. The extent of scarring and the size of the lesions could be determined precisely and objectively. We suggest that skin ultrasonography may be a useful supplementary method for evaluation of skin changes in torture victims.
