Multiple Injuries Diagnosed Using Full-Body Digital X-Ray

Arjan B van As et al. J Pediatr Surg. .

Abstract

Missed injuries in patients with multiple trauma are primarily attributable to inadequate radiography. A case is presented that demonstrates the value of a full-body digital radiography system in diagnosing pathology in pediatric multiple trauma patients. Full-body imaging allowed the identification of a ruptured diaphragm, a pelvic fracture, and a femoral fracture on a single radiographic projection in the resuscitation room, facilitating immediate intervention.
