Abstract

House officer predictions of lesions and CT scan diagnosis were compared for accuracy in a municipal and community hospital setting. The input of the CT scan into initial patient care was also evaluated. In the municipal hospital, house officers made fewer most-correct diagnoses, and the CT scan more often established the correct diagnosis (P < .03) and altered therapy (P < .02). Results suggest that municipal hospital patients could benefit from accessible CT scanners.
