Pediatric trauma

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This 18-month-old presented at Phoenix Children's Hospital's emergency department with multiple fractures as the result of a motor vehicle accident. The patient was sent for a CT scan on the IQon Spectral CT. The technologist used the Spectral CT Viewer during the exam.


The images acquired on the IQon Spectral CT showed that the child had multiple fractures and multiple internal injuries. Among other things, rib fractures caused the child to have bi-lateral pneumo-thorax and lung contusions.

Clinical significance

Spectral results are available for every patient scanned on the IQon Spectral CT. In this case, spectral results allowed the clinician to identify a left and right pneumothorax, prompting the medical team to act quickly to treat.

* Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
