OBJECTIVES: Trauma is one of the main causes of death in Japan, and treatments and prognoses of these injuries are constantly changing. We therefore aimed to investigate a 10-year trend (2004-2013) in inhospital mortality among patients with trauma in Japan. DESIGN: Multicentre observational study. SETTING: Japanese nationwide trauma registry (the Japan Trauma Data Bank) data. PARTICIPANTS: All patients with trauma whose Injury Severity Score (ISS) were 3 and above, who were aged 15 years or older, and whose mechanisms of injury (MOI) were blunt and penetrating between 2004 and 2013 (n=90 833)...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the true incidence of cervical artery dissections (CeADs) in trauma patients with an Injury Severity Score (ISS) of ≥16, since head-and-neck computed tomography angiogram (CTA) is not a compulsory component of whole-body trauma computed tomography (CT) protocols. Patients and methods: A total of 230 consecutive trauma patients with an ISS of ≥16 admitted to our Level I trauma center during a 24-month period were prospectively included...

The introduction of diphosphonates in the 1970s revolutionized not only nuclear medicine but musculoskeletal imaging as well, providing functional assessment of entities such as osteomyelitis, trauma, and osseous metastatic disease. Although rarely the first-line imaging modality used today, nuclear medicine procedures continue to play a pivotal role in the evaluation of musculoskeletal diseases in children, providing whole-body assessment of disease involvement. More recently, the introduction of technologies such as single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT), as well as newer positron-emitting tracers such as 18 fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose and sodium 18 F-fluorine, particularly when combined with CT (positron emission tomography/CT), have injected new life into the older established techniques and expanded the application of nuclear medicine imaging into new arenas...

BACKGROUND: Recent scientific work proved that knowledge about body composition beyond the body mass index is essential. Both adipose tissue and muscular status are determining risk factors of morbidity and mortality. Analysis of single cross-sectional computed tomography (CT) images, acquired during routine care only to prevent additional radiation exposure, provide a detailed insight into the body composition of chronically and critically ill patients. METHODS: This retrospective study included 490 trauma patients of whom a whole-body multiple detector CT scan was acquired at admission...

Whole-body computed tomography (CT) is becoming a mainstay of trauma imaging because it can help emergency department staff quickly and comprehensively evaluate the extent and severity of traumatic injuries. However, routine use of whole-body CT for trauma imaging remains controversial because of the lack of clear guidelines for appropriate use, concerns about how to manage incidental findings, and the risk posed by the modality's relatively high radiation doses. This article describes the pathobiology, epidemiology, and assessment of polytrauma and discusses the diagnostic evaluation of trauma with whole-body CT scanning...

Emergent exploratory laparotomy is recommended for hemodynamically unstable blunt trauma patients suspected of having hemoperitoneum. However, given the unreliability of ultrasonography and rapid scan speed of computed tomography (CT), CT might help clinicians provide accurate information even in hemodynamically unstable trauma patients. This observational study aimed to describe the bleeding site and hospital course of severe blunt trauma patients with hemoperitoneum diagnosed by CT scan.We enrolled all consecutive adult blunt trauma patients (≥18 years old) who underwent whole-body CT before operation between February 2012 and October 2016...

It is not a common case for neurosurgery department and the other departments to perform joint operation at the same time. Patients with severe head injury are a condition in which vital signs are unstable due to severe brain swelling and increased intracranial pressure, and emergency surgery is required. A 44-year-old man visited the trauma center with a motorcycle accident. The Glasgow Coma Scale score at the time of emergency department was 3 points, and the pupil was fixed at 6 mm on both sides. His medical history was unknown...

BACKGROUND: A 'whole body' or 'pan-scan' computed tomography (CT) imaging approach is now becoming the standard of care during the early management of adult patients with suspected severe blunt multitrauma. A number of studies have variously reported a mortality benefit or no benefit from a pan-scan approach compared to that of carrying out body region-focused CT and/or plain radiographs or a mixture of imaging modalities. However, unanswered questions still remain due to the significant heterogeneity in practice between institutions, and the limitations of published studies...

BACKGROUND: There are no widely accepted validated clinical decision rules for the use of WBCT in trauma. Given the potential risks and costs, there is a clear need for a clinical decision rule (CDR) to safely guide targeted use of WBCT. We aimed to derive a CDR to guide clinical decisions on WBCT utilisation by detecting patients at high and low risk of multi-region trauma. METHODS: We retrospectively identified consecutive patients who had presented to a major trauma centre with suspected major trauma...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To provide an update on the relevant and recent studies on whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) imaging of severely injured patients. RECENT FINDINGS: The advantages of WBCT in time saving, diagnostic accuracy and even in survival have been proven in numerous studies. WBCT can also be beneficial in haemodynamically unstable major trauma patients. The CT scanner should be located close to the emergency department or even in the trauma room. The issue of radiation is still quite important, however, iterative as well as split-bolus protocols can nowadays reduce radiation significantly...

OBJECTIVES: Whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) plays an increasingly important role in the diagnostic assessment of trauma room patients. It is still unclear whether its use has led to changes of trauma room procedures and patient outcomes. METHODS: In a retrospective multi-centric study based on the trauma registry of the German Trauma Society (TraumaRegister DGU®), we analysed patients with an ISS ≥ 9 between 2002 and 2013. Two periods of time, i.e. up to 3 years preceding (pre-WBCT) and up to 3 years following the introduction of the WBCT (WBCT-group), were assessed separately for every hospital (TR-DGU Project ID 2014-020)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Thoracic trauma remains to be a relevant injury to the polytraumatised patient. However, literature regarding how far changes in clinical guidelines for pre- and in-hospital trauma management and diagnostic procedures affect the outcome of multiple injured patients with severe chest injury during a long-term observation period is sparse. METHODS: Multiple traumatised patients (age≥16y) documented in the TraumaRegister DGU® (TR-DGU) from January 1st 2005 to December 31st 2014 with severe chest trauma (AIS≥3) were included in this study...

Incidental cardiovascular findings are common and can be found in up to 70% of patients. Previously, several reports about incidental findings (IFs) on whole body computed tomography (CT) were published. However, no previous study investigated cardiovascular IFs in patients with unclear finding situation and trauma of unknown origin on whole body CT.The radiological database of 2 university hospitals was screened for patients with trauma of unknown origin and unclear finding situation investigated by whole body CT...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of a novel trauma workflow, using an interventional radiology (IVR)-computed tomography (CT) system in severe trauma. BACKGROUND: In August 2011, we installed an IVR-CT system in our trauma resuscitation room. We named it the Hybrid emergency room (ER), as it enabled us to perform all examinations and treatments required for trauma in a single place. METHODS: This retrospective historical control study conducted in Japan included consecutive severe (injury severity score ≥16) blunt trauma patients...

BACKGROUND: To reduce the possibility of secondary deterioration of spinal injuries, it is desirable to maintain the spinal immobilisation that is applied in the prehospital setting throughout computed tomography (CT) scanning. A previous study found that metallic components within the inflation valve of the vacuum mattresses caused CT artefacts. The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of vacuum mattresses with plastic valves on CT artefacts, the radiation dose, and noise compared to a trauma transfer board and the spine boards currently used in our trauma system...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic injuries are a leading cause of death in polytrauma patients. Early diagnosis and treatment are of paramount importance. Whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) has largely replaced traditional imaging techniques such as conventional radiographs and focused computed tomography (CT) as diagnostic tools in severely injured patients. It is still unclear whether WBCT has led to higher rates of diagnosis of thoracic injuries and thus to a change in outcomes. METHODS: In a retrospective study based on the trauma registry of the German Trauma Society (TraumaRegister DGU®), we analysed data from 16,545 patients who underwent treatment in 59 hospitals between 2002 and 2012 (ISS ≥ 9)...

PURPOSE: The initial assessment of severely injured patients in the resuscitation room requires a systematic and quickly performed survey. Whereas the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS®)-based algorithm recommends focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST) among others, recent studies report a survival advantage of early whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) in haemodynamically stable as well as unstable patients. This study assessed the opinions of trauma surgeons about the early use of WBCT in severely injured patients with abdominal trauma, and abdominal CT in patients with isolated abdominal trauma, during resuscitation room treatment...
