    Hi, I need your help to translate from english to italian the following expression "skeletal survey".
    I find it very often in my research on child abuse because it is a series of radiographs of the body that is necessary to detect fractures or other injuries.
    For example: <<A skeletal survey should be performed in cases of suspected child abuse. The ACR defines the skeletal survey as 'a systematically performed series of radiographic images that encompasses the entire skeleton'>>
    (It's not a babygram!)
    I'd like to know if there is a specific expression in italian to say that. I'm going crazy!! :warn:

    I'll give you a hint, then you can come back with the answer:
    A "skeletal survey" is a common diagnostic method in "mieloma multiplo"
    There are two or three ways it can be expressed in Italian.

    Ho cercato in internet, certo, e so quello che significa letteralmente, ossia "indagine scheletrica" ma non so se posso tradurlo come "Rx total body" perché si tratta di una serie di radiografie, non di una unica e intera. Quindi volevo dei suggerimenti, forse troppo tecnici, no so..

    Esame radiografico dell'apparato scheletrico ?
