Abstract

Routine use of CT in the initial evaluation of blunt chest trauma is controversial, CT, however, has been shown to be useful in the diagnosis of unsuspected chest injuries and in directing therapeutic interventions. This review discusses the CT findings in patients with pulmonary, tracheobronchial, and diaphragmatic injuries after blunt chest trauma.
