ABSTRACT
Introduction. CT scan is the gold standard in abdominal blunt trauma in stable patients because it reduces the number of laparotomies. Material and methods. We have examined 327 patients with trauma. The examinations were made with a single-slice CT AURA (Philips). Protocol for trauma has included non enhanced scan followed by CT angiography with multiphase acquisition (arterial phase, portal-venous phase and a delayed phase for renal collecting system integrity check-out). Results Of 327 patients with blunt abdominal trauma examined during 2012, 52 cases representing 15,9 % had CT detectable intraabdominal lesions. Of them, more than half (27 cases representing 51,92%) had associated injuries (cranio-cerebral, thorax, spine, pelvis and extremities). 37 were males and 15 were females. Age ranged between two and 83 years old. Regarding the cause of trauma, we found the car accidents in 79% of cases, followed by accidental falling (13%) and aggression (8%). The injured organs were spleen (26 cases), liver (18 cases), kidney (7 cases), diaphragm in one case and associated musculoskeletal injuries were noted in 33 patients. Conclusions. CT angiography represents the best option for abdominal blunt trauma showing active bleeding, contrast extravasation and also devascularisation.

    PURPOSE: Intrahepatic portal vein injuries secondary to blunt abdominal trauma are difficult to diagnose and can result in insidious bleeding. We aimed to compare computed tomography arterial portography (CTAP), reperfusion CTAP (rCTAP), and conventional computed tomography (CT) for diagnosing...

    This study aims to investigate the effect of iterative reconstruction (IR) on MDCT image quality and radiologists' ability to diagnose and grade blunt solid organ injuries. One hundred (100) patients without and 52 patients with solid organ injuries were scanned on a 64-slice MDCT scanner using...

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant source of major morbidity and mortality in blunt trauma patients. Computed tomography (CT) is the primary imaging modality of choice for patients with potential brain injury in the acute setting, with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) playing a role...

    Nonoperative management (NOM) of blunt liver or spleen injuries (LSI) is widely accepted, but diaphragmatic injuries (DI) can be elusive. We hypothesize that rib fractures and minor LSI (RF+ minor LSI) are associated with DI. Patients with blunt injury undergoing exploratory laparotomy between...
