Abstract
Abdominal trauma is of two varieties including blunt and penetrating injury. In present scenario, Computed Tomography scan has become the main diagnostic tool for evaluating injuries to major abdominal organs including liver, pancreas, spleen, kidney, small gut, large gut and mesentery. The study was undertaken to characterise the imaging features of various organs injuries in cases of abdominal trauma using multi detector computed tomography. It was found that CT provides a detailed and elusive information regarding the injury to various organs and vessels. Combined efforts of the trauma team and emergency radiologist helps to permit proper triage of the patient and helps in management of the trauma cases.
