Most patients admitted with an acute surgical problem undergo some imaging during their in-patient stay. As computed tomography (CT) scanning becomes more readily available, it is becoming the mainstay of assessment. Recent studies have commented on the potential adverse effects of early cross-sectional imaging. This audit aimed to determine the use of early cross-sectional imaging and associated radiation dose in an acute surgical cohort.
