On-demand Chest Radiographs for Hypoxia: Impact on Clinical Care
Journal of Thoracic Imaging, 05/10/2012
Walker CM et al. – On–demand radiographs performed for acute hypoxic clinical events yield a high percentage of major findings, with nearly half of them potentially influencing or resulting in new therapeutic interventions. Interventions were more likely in the major finding group, with most being appropriate. These results support the efficacy of the on–demand radiograph by providing evidence of its utility in patient management decisions.
