AMERICAN SOCIETY OF EMERGENCY RADIOLOGY
Loftus, MD; James K. Min, MD. The advent of around-the-clock access to imaging equipment and expertise has brought cutting-edge, advanced imaging to the front lines of emergency care. For this special article, leading emergency radiologists discuss the applicability and utility of several of these techniques in the ED setting. As EDs have evolved to handle the increasing volume and complexity of patients requiring immediate care, so too, has the field of emergency radiology.
Many EDs across the country now have multiple advanced imaging modalities available 24 hours a day, including Xray, computed tomography CT , ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging MRI.
While many emergency medicine physicians are now trained in performing and evaluating ultrasound images—similar to X-rays in the past—most are less comfortable with CT and MRI. Emergency radiology, now a recognized subspecialty of diagnostic imaging, has proliferated to meet the demands for immediate interpretation of these images. This combination of around-the-clock access to equipment and expertise has brought cutting-edge, advanced imaging to the front lines of emergency care.
In this special feature, we invited a group of emergency radiologists and an expert in cardiovascular imaging to discuss the applicability and utility of several of these techniques in the ED setting.

As illustrated by this panel, advanced imaging has become increasingly valuable and available in providing care to ED patients. Advanced imaging has become critical in these instances and will be discussed in a future article.

Although a focused abdominal sonography for trauma scan was negative, contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a large complex liver laceration red oval, Figure in the right lobe and a right adrenal hematoma yellow arrow, Figure. However, the use and role of a FAST scan in hemodynamically stable patients has recently been questioned since, based on its relatively low sensitivity for visceral injury, many of these cases eventually require computed tomography CT See Case.
In addition, patients in this subset with a positive FAST scan frequently have subsequent CT to further assist clinicians in understanding the nature of injury and to guide management recommendations eg, operative versus nonoperative options.
