Abstract

Emergency radiology is a relatively new subspecialty. It is a blend of organ systems and modalities, with dedication to the immediate evaluation of patients with acute conditions. Emergency radiologists provide time-critical support to trauma surgeons and other acute-care providers, using the full gamut of imaging modalities to provide the best care. Emergency radiologists also constitute the core of worldwide tele-radiology services, providing off-hour coverage to institutions that lack sufficient staff to provide these services. Emergency radiology is also a new academic discipline, with emergency radiology faculty who are dedicated to research and the teaching of emergency imaging to medical students, residents and fellows.
