Tessaro MO, McGovern TR, Dickman E, Haines LE. Point-of-Care Ultrasound Detection of Acute Scaphoid Fracture. Pediatr Emerg Care. 2015 Mar;31(3):222-224
In cases of traumatic wrist pain, emergency physicians must maintain a high index of suspicion for scaphoid fractures due to their potential for serious complications. A growing body of literature supports the use of point-of-care ultrasonography by emergency physicians in the evaluation of potential fractures. We report a case of a pediatric scaphoid fracture that was initially not visualized on x-ray and was subsequently detected using point-of-care ultrasound in the ED.
