PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to determine the prevalence of fractures and incidental findings (IF) with emphasis on clinical significance. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 784 patients were evaluated by computed tomography. Fractures and IF were registered and classified as significant if they were recommended for additional diagnostics or therapy. RESULTS Four hundred seventy of 784 patients (60%) sustained a fracture. Significant fractures were found in 694/1213 fractures (57… CONTINUE READING
