The care of major trauma patients continues to be a challenge for emergency physicians and trauma surgeons. We found that the total number of radiological examinations for major trauma patients in this study was high and mainly comprised radiography and computed tomography (CT), with CT being more commonly adopted. The number of CT scans was positively correlated with severity of injury and intensive care unit length of stay. Further study is warranted to optimize radiological examinations involving major trauma patients.
