#PathofaTraumaPatient: Once a patient is stabilized in the shock trauma room at the Smith Level I Shock Trauma Center at #EskenaziHealth, they are often taken for further testing. The trauma surgeon may order a CT scan of the head, neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis to assist in locating internal injuries or bleeding.
Eskenazi Health has an industry-leading, state-of-the-art CT scanner. Our scanners allow trauma surgeons to locate injuries with unprecedented accuracy and speed. A scan can be acquired from head to toe in less than 30 seconds. Speed and accuracy are critical factors in the care of the trauma patient.
