J Clin Anal Med 2017;8(Suppl 4):464-467


Nasal bone fractures are one of the most common reasons for emergency service admissions. Radiography and computed tomography (CT) examinations are usually performed following rhinologic examination. Ultrasonography (US) is a non-invasive, inexpensive technique that has been shown to reveal fractures of different areas of the face, such as the nasal bone and other extremity bone fractures. The advantages of US (fast, unexpensive, radiation-free) are well known in the emergency department (ED), but itís use for the diagnosis and management of nasal bone fractures in the ED are not as well-established.
