Evaluation of rib fractures in patients with blunt chest trauma by using chest radiograph, axial computed tomography, and three-dimensional volume-rendering images

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Chest radiograph was useless to evaluate rib fractures. Although the time of evaluation of rib fractures by using 3D volume-rendering images was significantly shorter, rib fractures in patients with blunt chest trauma should be not evaluated by using 3D volume-rendering images alone.
