Radiology in the Management of Wounds

  • O. B. Adler


The mainstay of the radiological workup of the acute trauma patient are plain radiographs, complemented when available by computed tomography examinations. Fluoroscopy and angiography are used under specific circumstances. Nuclear medicine and ultrasonography can be employed in blunt injuries to the abdomen and in the follow-up of these patients.
