Learning objectives: To present the full body radiography system as an alternative examination method to CT scanning  in trauma patients at emergency departments;  To share LS images of polytrauma patients from Republican Vilnius University Hospital, Lithuania.  

Background: Lodox Statscan (LS) is a digital, low-radiation X-ray scanner imaging device, that produces full-body anterior-posterior (AP) and lateral thoraco-abdominal views in 3-5 minutes with low radiotion doses based on enhanced linear slit scanning radiography (LSSR) technology [1, 2]. (Fig. 1, Fig. 2) &nbs[...]

Findings and procedure details: The LS consists of an X-ray tube and charge-coupled device (CCD) detector, mounted on opposite ends of a C-arm. During scanning, C-arm travels along the table length at up to 138 mm/s, which emits thin (≤1 mm), collimated fan-beam of x-rays which are detected by the narrow detector [10]. This config[...]

Conclusion: LS visualizes skeletal, chest, and pelvic pathologies "all-in-one” and could therefore be used as an alternative to the traditional trauma X-ray for evaluation of acute trauma patients [11]. The current gold standard in emergency department’s trauma imaging is CT scanning. LS may be valuable for t[...]
