Poster 11-19C. Analysis of X-ray Examinations over the Easter Weekend (Children's Poster)

Sereesh Moodley (South Africa) (14 years)


Poster Abstract

I have gathered data of x-ray examination requests at x-ray departments (Mount Edgecomb, North Coast and Isipingo, South Coast) in Durban. I evaluated the reasons for the x-ray requests, the region in the body x-rayed and the age of the patient. I wanted to establish the primary causes of injury during this period. From my findings, road accidents appear to be the main cause of injury. However, the sample analysed is not representative of the province to provide any conclusive evidence that road accidents were responsible for more injuries during this period.
