From: Diagnostic significance of rib series in minor thorax trauma compared to plain chest film and computed tomography

Rib series CT No  
Fracture/cor. number Fracture/cor. number 16 Sensitivity 73% p = 0.031 (McNemar) 95% CI: 0.54; 0.91
No fracture/wrong number Fracture/cor. number 6
No fracture No fracture 34 Specificity 100%
Fracture No fracture 0  
  1. CT = computed tomography; No = number.
