OBJECTIVES Supine anteroposterior (AP) chest radiographs in patients with blunt trauma have poor sensitivity for the identification of pneumothorax. Ultrasound (US) has been proposed as an alternative screening test for pneumothorax in this population. The authors conducted an evidence-based review of the medical literature to compare sensitivity of bedside US and AP chest radiographs in identifying pneumothorax after blunt trauma. METHODS MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched for trials… Expand
Chest ultrasonography versus supine chest radiography for diagnosis of pneumothorax in trauma patients in the emergency department.
TLDR
Comparing the diagnostic accuracy of chest ultrasonography by frontline non-radiologist physicians versus chest X-ray (CXR) for diagnosis of pneumothorax in trauma patients in the emergency department (ED) and the effects of potential sources of heterogeneity such as type of CUS operator (frontline non- Radiologist physicians), type of trauma, and type of US probe on test accuracy is investigated.

Diagnosis of Traumatic Pneumothorax: A Comparison between Lung Ultrasound and Supine Chest Radiographs
TLDR
Lung ultrasound is more sensitive in detecting traumatic pneumothorax than supine chest X-rays, in addition to having numerous other inherent advantages over chest radiography. Expand
First-line sonographic diagnosis of pneumothorax in major trauma: accuracy of e-FAST and comparison with multidetector computed tomography
TLDR
Thoracic ultrasound (e-FAST) is a rapid and accurate first-line, bedside diagnostic modality for the diagnosis of pneumothorax in unstable patients with major chest trauma during the primary survey in the emergency room. Expand
Accuracy of emergency physician-performed ultrasound in detecting traumatic pneumothorax after a 2-h training course
TLDR
Thoracic US can be an easy to learn and an accurate diagnostic modality for the detection of traumatic pneumothorax in emergency departments and after just a 2-h training course, emergency physicians showed a good success rate in finding pneumothsoraces. Expand

TLDR
Postoperative thoracic ultrasound in unselected patients has a low overall sensitivity to detect a residual pneumothorax; however, its sensitivity and negative predictive values regarding clinically relevant pneumothsorax are high. Expand
A study on the evaluation of pneumothorax by imaging methods in patients presenting to the emergency department for blunt thoracic trauma.
TLDR
Chest US has not superseded supine and standing chest radiography for PNX diagnosis yet in many healthcare centers, but it is performed by emergency physicians and it is an effective and important method for early and bedside diagnosis of PNx. Expand
Role of bedside sonography in the assessment of patients with chest trauma in the emergency department of Suez Canal University Hospital
TLDR
Chest ultrasound is a useful tool for the emergency physician for bedside rapid and accurate diagnosis without interruption of the resuscitation and without transferring the patient for the radiology unit. Expand
Diagnostic Accuracy of Ultrasonography and Radiography in Initial Evaluation of Chest Trauma Patients
TLDR
The results of the present study showed that ultrasonography is preferable to radiography in the initial evaluation of patients with traumatic injuries to the thoracic cavity. Expand
Clinician-performed Beside Ultrasound for the Diagnosis of Traumatic Pneumothorax
TLDR
In a large heterogenous group of clinicians who typically care for trauma patients, the sonographic evaluation for pneumothorax was as accurate as supine chest radiography and may be helpful in the initial evaluation of patients with truncal trauma. Expand
Diagnostic Accuracy of Chest Ultrasound versus Plain Chest X-ray in Acute Assessment of Traumatic Hemothorax
TLDR
Ultrasound has significant value in initial assessment of life-threatening conditions of trauma with acceptable sensitivity and high specificity with acceptable sensitization and specificity. Expand

TLDR
With CT as the criterion standard, US is more sensitive than flat AP chest radiography in the diagnosis of traumatic PTX, and allowed sonologists to differentiate between small, medium, and large PTXs with good agreement with CT results. Expand
Traumatic pneumothorax detection with thoracic US: correlation with chest radiography and CT--initial experience.
TLDR
In this study, US was more sensitive than supine chest radiography and as sensitive as CT in the detection of traumatic pneumothoraces. Expand
Ultrasound diagnosis of occult pneumothorax*
TLDR
For the diagnosis of occult pneumothorax, ultrasound can decrease the need for computed tomography, and this study concluded that lung ultrasound could be of any help in this situation. Expand
Rapid detection of pneumothorax by ultrasonography in patients with multiple trauma
TLDR
Bedside clinician-performed ultrasonography (US) provides a reliable tool and has the advantages of being simple and rapid and having higher sensitivity and accuracy compared to chest radiography for the detection of pneumothorax in patients with multiple trauma. Expand
The ultrasonographic deep sulcus sign in traumatic pneumothorax.
TLDR
Ultrasonographic ultrasonography reflects accurately the extent of pneumothorax if compared with CT scan, outlining the "ultrasonographic deep sulcus sign" on anterior chest wall, and may detect occult pneumothsorax undiagnosed by standard plain radiography. Expand
Occult traumatic pneumothorax: diagnostic accuracy of lung ultrasonography in the emergency department.
TLDR
Lung US scans carried out in the emergency department of the ED detect occult PTX and its extension with an accuracy that is almost as high as the reference standard (CT scanning). Expand
Hand-held thoracic sonography for detecting post-traumatic pneumothoraces: the Extended Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (EFAST).
TLDR
EFAST has comparable specificity to CXR but is more sensitive for the detection of OPTXs after trauma, and positive EFAST findings should be addressed either clinically or with CT depending on hemodynamic stability. Expand
Occult pneumothorax in the blunt trauma patient: tube thoracostomy or observation?
TLDR
The natural history of OP in blunt trauma patients at a Canadian tertiary trauma centre appears to be one of uneventful resolution irrespective of ISS, need for PPV, or placement of tube thoracostomy. Expand
Detection of occult pneumothoraces on abdominal computed tomographic scans in trauma patients.
TLDR
Abdominal CT scanning provided important information about thoracic trauma often missed on initial evaluation in the trauma bay, and frequently affected the patient's clinical management. Expand
CT detection of occult pneumothorax in head trauma.
TLDR
Chest CT proved itself as the most sensitive method for detection of occult pneumothorax, permitting early chest tube placement to prevent transition to a tension pneumoth orax during subsequent mechanical ventilation or emergency surgery under general anesthesia. Expand
