SUMMARY

In industrialized countries, traumas represent the third leading cause of death, after cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Thoracic structures are involved in up to 30% of blunt traumas. Knowledge of the various radiological patterns of blunt chest trauma is thus mandatory for all radiologists, intensivists, and other physicians involved in trauma care. This book is designed to meet this need. It provides a systematic review of all aspects of the radiology of blunt trauma of the chest. Most radiological patterns described in the literature as well as some new ones are comprehensively illustrated using an image data file spanning more than 10 years. Particular emphasis is placed on correlation between the results of the various emergency imaging modalities: conventional radiology, computed tomography, ultrasonography and angiography
