Presentation Description :
Retinal hemorrhage is an important sign of abusive head trauma in infants, but the underlying biomechanical mechanisms and forces that result in retinal hemorrhage are unknown. In this talk, I will present computational, animal, and experimental data from my own lab and others that highlight the limited state of knowledge regarding the biomechanics of retinal hemorrhage. Throughout the presentation, I will identify critical areas of research needed to elucidate mechanisms of retinal hemorrhage, and to assist in the differential diagnosis of abusive head trauma.
