Intimate partner violence (IPV) is defined as “…consistent and coercive verbal, emotional, and physical violence directed toward a current or former intimate partner.” IPV and domestic abuse are a continual, debilitating experience of physical, psychological, and the potential ongoing sexual abuse. Whenever anyone is placed in physical danger or controlled by the threat or use of physical force, the potential for intimate partner violence can occur. Although women can be violent in relationships with men, often in self-defense, and violence sometimes occurs in same-sex partnerships, the most common perpetrators of violence against women are current male intimate partners or ex-partners. In the United States, as many as 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men are victims of IPV. Many cases of domestic abuse are thought go unreported. IPV causes diminished psychological and physical health and decreases the overall quality of life of the victim and their family members. The goal of this article is to discuss adult-to-adult IPV and how medical imaging can assist healthcare providers in providing the proper diagnosis and legal incident documentation in assisting victims of abuse towards healing and safety.
After reading this article, the participant should be able to:
• Explain what intimate partner violence (IPV) is, based on current definitions and statistics.
• Describe the aspects, reporting, and clinical findings in cases of IPV.
• Discuss the various imaging parameters of digital radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound and their role in diagnosing IPV trauma.
• Understand how traumatic brain injuries correspond to cases of IPV.
