In brief: Multiple fractures

Patients presenting the emergency room with multiple fractures are usually diagnosed with xrays initially.
More advanced imaging may be necessary, but old fashioned xrays is the standard of care.

In brief: Multiple fractures

Xrays are the quickest and most informative for multiple fractures.
If the fracture is at a joint and surgery is necessary then we sometimes will order a ct scan.
