Spiral Chest CT During Primary Diagnosis and Intensive Care Following Multiple Trauma

Summary

The performance of a rapid spiral chest CT scan during primary diagnosis and intensive care leads, in a high percentage of cases, to clinically relevant diagnoses. In particular, occult ventral (tension-) pneumothoraces and lung contusions have been found in one third of polytraumatized patients both initially and during the sequential course. Additional insertion of chest tubes has been observed to be the major consequence.
