'Selective strategy' recommended for CT scans in emergency departments
Date:1/18/2011

his colleagues were able to test different scenarios to see how each strategy held up.

The model showed that the selective CT strategy resulted in both a life expectancy increase for patients and a cost savings for hospitals. Ward's analysis is published in the January issue of Academic Emergency Medicine.

"Our work suggests that a PE diagnostic strategy that uses compression ultrasound followed by selective CTA is not only cost-effective, but may be a way to reduce the incidence of adverse affects associated with the CTA," says Ward.

Ward says that an ultrasound strategy has been used in the ED before, but only as a rule-out strategy, rather than the rule-in approach tested in this study. With almost half the CTAs in the U.S. in 2006 performed in the emergency room, he says a reduction of unnecessary CTA imaging in a cost-effective manner can have a strong impact for both patients and health care providers.
