Abstract

Bluntabdominal injuries are often difficult to be accurately assessed clinically especially with concomitant external injury, in patients with head injury and in paediatric patients1. CT scan is the modality of choice for the evaluation of abdominal injury due to blunt trauma in hemodynamically stable children as it is widely available,rapidly performed with accurate depiction of various solid and hollow viscus injuries and associated retroperitoneal or pancreatic injuries2. Delay in diagnosis may not alter the mortality or choice of management but could significantly increase the rate of complications and prolong the length of hospital stay,hence timely and accurate diagnosis of intraabdominal injury is of utmost importance3.
