Abstract

Selection and design of the most appropriate imaging studies during an emergency involving pregnant and/or potentially pregnant female has been the topic of numerous recent articles. While radiation dose must be limited to the necessary amount, a cautious application must never be so severe as to compromise the ability to make the correct diagnosis. No one approach suits all facilities or all circumstances. All approaches need to be institution specific, and may be country or continent dependent. In this article we review our approach to this scenario.
