> We are interested in ED practices regarding routine plain radiographs obtained prior to radiology ultrasounds for patients with suspected intussusception. Specifically, are you required to get an x-ray before an ultrasound will be done (i.e. to evaluate for free air)? Thanks for everyone's input. Jennifer Marin, MD, MScChildren's Hospital of Pittsburgh
