    Introduction: Combat-related thoracic trauma (CRTT) is a significant contributor to morbidity and mortality of the casualties from Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Penetrating, blunt, and blast injuries are the most common mechanisms of trauma to the chest. Imaging plays a key role in the battlefield management of CRTT casualties. The ACR Appropriateness Criteria ® (AC) are evidence-based guidelines to assist referring physicians and other providers in making the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition. Employing these guidelines helps providers enhance quality of care and contribute to the most efficacious use of radiology.

Benefits of chest x-ray include portability (allowing it to be used in the resuscitation bay without moving an unstable patient), speed of acquisition (seconds) and image availability (minutes), low expense (approximately $50 to $), and low radiation exposure ( mSv, equivalent to 1 day.
