Former studies have already shown, that MRI findings in victims after survived strangulation allow the diagnosis of strangulation. Native 3T MR scans of the neck were performed in strangulation victims without external findings. All subjects showed strangulation specific MRI findings. Therefore, MRI of the neck is indicated in cases of reported manual strangulation.
