dr. Raissaki: what CT protocol do you advice in abdominal trauma of a child? CTA and portovenous scanning or do you use split bolus protocol?

In case of blunt trauma and pelvic fractures based on the radiograph or the scout view, I would do an arterial phase acquisition and a second phase acquisition. In case there is no pelvic fracture I would do a single pass split bolus or long bolus (camp Bastion wheel) protocol.

@Stavros Stivaros an excellent presentation. Are there optimal time frames for follow up imaging advised, or should these be based on individual clinical assessment of need?

Hi Clare, I am very glad you found the presentation useful.  Regarding optimal follow-up times, I think you are correct in that they need to be based on clinical need outside of the acute setting.  Please don't forget though that radiology can often advise on delayed issues following trauma that might not be readily apparent to the clinical team.  For example the child with the shrunken flap syndrome in my presentation was already at a rehab unit before the relevance of that to the patient's poor cognitive recovery was identified.  I hope this helps and have a great conference.
