Radiology Grand Rounds: Body CT with Intravenous Contrast in the ED Setting
As the volume of medical imaging obtained in the emergency department (ED) has increased over the last 2 decades, emergency physicians are now at the forefront of determining patients' exposure to ionizing radiation. Ordering physicians must be aware of risks inherent to ionizing radiation, available alternative imaging modalities, and appropriateness of each study.
