If M-mode imaging is used, the presence of a succession of horizontal lines may be related to endobronchial intubation or pneumothorax. The “lung pulse” observed in M-mode normally results from movement of the visceral over the parietal pleura with every heartbeat and may give the false impression that pneumothorax or endobronchial intubation do not exist.

The definitive method of diagnosis of C-spine injury in the early phase after injury is thin slice (2 or 3 mm) computed tomography (CT). Subjecting every patient with suspected C-spine injury to CT, however, would result in many unnecessary radiographic studies, radiation exposure, high costs, and delays in patient care. In the beginning of the millennium, a prospective observational study performed in 34,000 patients in 21 centers across the United States produced a simple decision instrument, in which a clinical evaluation showing absence of posterior cervical pain and tenderness, no focal neurological deficit, normal alertness, no evidence of intoxication, and no obvious distracting injury indicated a low probability of a C-spine injury and justified ruling it out without the need for radiographic evaluation [52].
