Abstract

The central role of radiology in the decision-making process for managing blast injury victims ensures a large percent of mass casualty patients will require radiology services during their initial assessment. The potential for movement of significant number of seriously injured patients through radiology requires familiarity with the mechanisms of blast injury, potential red flags for patients who should proceed to definitive care rather than additional studies, and early signs of deterioration to watch for while in the radiology department.
