Trauma Radiology

Chief of Service: Clint W. Sliker, MD

The mission of the Trauma and Emergency Radiology Section is to provide rapid, comprehensive, and expert clinical radiology service to the patients at the Shock Trauma Center, while also advancing the use of non-invasive imaging in Trauma care through research and education.

The Trauma and Emergency Radiology Section consists of eight radiologists with training and extensive experience in the use of non-invasive imaging modalities to diagnose acute injuries and their complications resulting from either blunt or penetrating trauma. The Trauma radiologists are on-site around-the-clock, providing specialized diagnostic imaging interpretations and consultations. In addition, the members of the section oversee image acquisition, tailoring studies according to the type of trauma sustained, while also supervising Radiology residents and fellows.

Diagnostic Imaging services at the Shock Trauma Center include radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance medicine (MRI), nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and interventional diagnostic procedures. Equipment within the main trauma facility includes direct radiography and both 40-slice and 64-slice multidetector CT scanners. In Spring 2016, the 40-slice CT scanner will be replaced by a state-of-the art, dual source, dual energy CT scanner that will allow acquisition of images that provide greater anatomic detail and functional information, more rapidly, scanning head-to-toe in less than one minute, and with less radiation dose to the patient than other current CT technology. Patients at Shock Trauma also have access to advanced MRI technologies, including both 1.5T and 3T systems, that facilitate comprehensive evaluation of brain, neurovascular, and spinal injuries.

Reflecting the role of Radiology in contemporary Trauma and Acute Care medicine, the Trauma and Emergency Radiology Section is very busy, interpreting nearly 90,000 imaging studies in Fiscal Year 2015. During that time, the section accounted for 30% of all imaging studies and just over one-half of all CT scans performed in the Department of Radiology for the entire University of Maryland Medical Center. Section members regularly publish book chapters and peer-reviewed research in areas related to Trauma Radiology, lecture at national society meetings, and participate in the training of both residents and fellows in Diagnostic Radiology, Trauma Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and Critical Care Medicine.
