Answer

Patients with only mild symptoms without any hemodynamic instability do not require imaging studies. Obtain a chest radiograph in patients with chest pain, fever, altered mental status, or respiratory complaints. In patients with seizures or altered mental status despite initial resuscitation, consider obtaining a nonenhanced head CT scan.
