Medical Radiographic Imaging Recommendations
The Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention has created Medical Radiographic Imaging Recommendations, based on the latest medical literature, for hospitals and medical providers across America. “The goals of the recommendations include calling for doctors to evaluate the carotid and vertebral arteries for injuries, the bony/cartilaginous and soft tissue neck structure, and the brain for anoxic injuries,” said Dr. Smock. “The recommendations have already been implemented and adopted by more than 100 hospitals and academic emergency medicine programs around the world,” said Dr. Smock. See the list of hospitals who have adopted this protocol here.
