Abstract

Traumatic pulmonary parenchymal injuries demonstrate a characteristic appearance in distribution, morphology, and temporal evolution on the chest radiograph and CT that often allows the radiologist to provide a narrow differential or definitive diagnosis. Accurate, focused diagnosis on the part of the radiologist can significantly aid the trauma surgeon/clinician in tailoring treatment and appropriate follow-up to optimize patient care with reduction in morbidity and mortality.
