Mass Casualty Planning: Lessons Learned from Emergency Radiology


Dr. Susan Cross from Barts Health NHS Trust discusses the experiences of her institution with multiple mass casualty events during the American Society of Emergency Radiology 2020 annual meeting.

It is impossible to know when a major incident -- a multi-car crash, a subway attack, or even a major pandemic -- is going to strike. But, not knowing that it is coming does not mean radiology departments cannot be prepared.

In her session during the American Society of Emergency Radiology 2020 annual meeting, Dr. Susan Cross from Barts Health NHS Trust in London shared the experiences she and her emergency radiology colleagues have had in caring for patients impacted by multiple mass casualty events.

Cross spoke with Diagnostic Imaging and shared not only some lessons learned, but some details about modality-specific planning for these events, as well as what obstacles may exist.
