In Reply to: what will you do in such situation? posted by bob on October 24, 2010 at 15:44:24:
Im a Neurology resident at a prestigious program (4th year). CT scan is indeed without contrast as blood shows up very well on CT scan (97% sensitivity). Contrast is to make the tissue more obvious not blood. Call the radiology attending and discretely tell him what is the situation, he will call the senior resident and let him know it is NOT with contrast without mentioning you. As for your second question I always stayed and helped even till 11pm at night when i was suppose to leave at 5. Though when it was my turn to be helped I was always left alone. LOL so its up to you. I have done 16 admissions in one night and given a list of 10 admission at start of my call which is insane. No help from anyone. So its mostly up to you.
