We do not have an image intensifier in our ED. If required we need to
borrow it from medical imaging.
We manipulate most fractures in the ED here and would use an I.I. /
C-arm for about 1-2% only. We have a very good success rate.
Can I suggest that for many and perhaps most paed fracture reductions
the use of imaging to aid reduction is unnecessary.
I do agree that gaining an image easily in the room immediately post
reduction would save some time and resources.
