Abstract
This chapter aims to explore the history of imaging in medicine, the evolution of the photodocumentation of genital injury and the medical and ethical issues involved as they affect adult cases as opposed to child cases. Both the reticence of doctors to photodocument genital injury on ethical grounds, and the medical and legal consequences of this for both complainants and defendants in rape cases, is of particular interest to both authors of this chapter.
