Notes:
For ED orders: Use “No Protocol Required” for these exams. If you are on call, you must page the radiologist on call to tell them the images are on PACS.

You do not need to have the images checked by a radiologist for pediatric patients before you get them off the table, just make sure the images have enough coverage and are of good quality.
