Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Terrorism is the war of our time, and terrorists push their demands in many ways, leading to great diversity in the number and type of injuries and casualties. Between September 2000 and January 2005, Israel experienced 136 suicide attacks. CONCLUSION: We have reviewed the imaging procedures performed on victims of suicide bomber terror attacks that occurred during this period. We have studied the injury patterns encountered in such attacks, their mechanisms, and the dilemmas arising from them. To deal with such multiple trauma events more efficiently, we have established a multidisciplinary trauma team in which radiologists play a major role.
