would love to see the methodology on this paper...besides, most people 
would not scan the abdo looking for just a liver issue...i.e. still 
find it a worthless test...

We published a paper in the late 80s that showed that liver injury (esp 
intrahepatic hematomas) are extremely rate with normal liver enzymes 
but not if they are elevated (p < 0.001)

Thus if your enzymes are normal, you do not need to do CT if worried 
about handlebar injuries, etc.
