In cases of sexual assault, it is important that investigators and care providers be able to respond quickly and appropriately in examining survivors, not only to ensure their health and safety but also to preserve any physical evidence left by the perpetrator. In such cases, a convenient visual reference can provide valuable support to investigators in making a timely and accurate assessment.
Physical Examinations of Sexual Assault Pocket Atlas, Vol. 1: Assault Histories includes over 500 full-color examination photos demonstrating both common and unusual findings in cases of sexual assault across the life span. These photos include case studies written by attending medical practitioners, providing valuable insight into findings in each particular case. With a convenient visual reference at the ready, sexual assault response team members in medicine, law enforcement, and in any other field involved with the investigation of sexual assault will be well prepared to make fast and effective assessments in the field.
