Satisfaction of Search for Subtle Skeletal Fractures May Not Be Induced by More Serious Skeletal Injury
Journal of the American College of Radiology, 05/14/2012Berbaum KS et al.
Satisfaction of search was absent when major injuries were presented on radiographs. This finding rejects the hypothesis that satisfaction–of–search (SOS) arises primarily from injuries requiring major intervention. Similar results have been found previously when major injuries were presented on CT but test fractures were presented on radiographs. This new finding rejects the possibility that SOS is absent because added and test fractures appear on different imaging modalities.
