Systematic review: effect of whole-body computed tomography on mortality in trauma patients.

Hajibandeh S, Hajibandeh S - J Inj Violence Res (2015)

Bottom Line: Literatures were found by searching keywords in Medline, PubMed and Cochrane library.Searching the keywords in Medline and PubMed resulted in 178 and 167 articles, respectively.Unlike previous systematic reviews, this review indicates that use of WBCT in blunt trauma patients is associated with reduced overall mortality rate and that WBCT can potentially improve the probability of survival in haemodynamically stable and unstable blunt trauma patients.
