And a normal whole C-spine CT?

We're clearing unconscious C-spines on CT only.  Why not awakes?

BTW I totally agree with Rick.  The Cspine clearance algorithm of the future will be:

Meets criteria for clinical clearance?
YES : Clear clinically
	Able to clear?
		YES: CLEAR
		NO:  CT
NO:   CT

+ Abnormal neurological exam: MRI
