2 Introduction 29 year old male in single car MVA 29 year old male in single car MVA Patient air-lifted to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center. Patient air-lifted to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center. Pt. was stable but unconscious on arrival. Pt. was stable but unconscious on arrival. Pt. presented with multiple fractures and abdominal injuries. Pt. presented with multiple fractures and abdominal injuries. ER Dr. ordered a portable CXR and head/neck/chest/abdomen/pelvic CT’s ER Dr. ordered a portable CXR and head/neck/chest/abdomen/pelvic CT’s

3 Portable AP Chest X-ray Film done supine on backboard Film done supine on backboard 14X17 cassette cross-wise 14X17 cassette cross-wise mAs 50 inches mAs 50 inches

4 Axial CT Chest Slice This slice is showing the lungs and the heart in the center. This slice is showing the lungs and the heart in the center. The slice also shows atelectasis which is the partial collapse of a lung due to a blockage of the airway. The slice also shows atelectasis which is the partial collapse of a lung due to a blockage of the airway.

5 Axial CT Abdomen Slice This slice shows the liver of the patient and the arrows indicate contusions. This slice shows the liver of the patient and the arrows indicate contusions.

6 Axial CT Abdomen/Chest Slice This is another contusion of the upper portion of the liver. This is another contusion of the upper portion of the liver.

7 Coronal CT Slice This slice shows the liver on the right and the spleen on the left. This slice shows the liver on the right and the spleen on the left. Notice the smooth borders of both the liver and the spleen. Notice the smooth borders of both the liver and the spleen.

8 Coronal CT Slice The lower margin of the spleen in this slide has become disrupted and is rough in appearance. The lower margin of the spleen in this slide has become disrupted and is rough in appearance.

9 Coronal CT Slice This next slide shows this even more so. This next slide shows this even more so.

10 Coronal CT Slice This is indicative of a macerated spleen. This basically means that the tissue has been shredded. This is indicative of a macerated spleen. This basically means that the tissue has been shredded.

11 Axial CT Abdomen Slice This is just another view of that gives a different view of the macerated spleen. This is just another view of that gives a different view of the macerated spleen.

12 Axial CT Abdomen Slice In this slice, the Mesenteric vasculature is visualized and a bleed can be seen. In this slice, the Mesenteric vasculature is visualized and a bleed can be seen.
