OBJECTIVE To determine whether infrared spectroscopy allows early recognition of epidural and subdural haematomas among trauma patients. METHODS Injured people admitted to two trauma units were enrolled in a prospective multicentre observational study, and infrared spectroscopy was performed before computed tomography of the head as a part of their initial evaluation.
