Care for patients who have time-sensitive disease processes in the emergency department and critical care settings is optimized with rapid diagnosis and intervention. Recent advances in medical imaging have increased portability, decreased image acquisition time, improved data resolution, and increased use of noninvasive studies. This article discusses the use of portable imaging techniques such as bedside ultrasound and radiography as well as CT and CT angiography in the diagnosis and care of critically ill patients.
