Introduction: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an extremely common and potentially devastating problem. CT is the single most informative modality in the evaluation of patients with head injury. Material and Method: This Prospective Study is carried out in patients attending/referred to Sardar Patel Medical College & Associate Group of Hospitals, Bikaner patients with clinically suspected head injury during the period of March 2016 to Nov 2016. This study was conducted on 100 patients with…

Evidence Related to Predictive Scales for Trauma Patients' Outcome: Literature Review

TLDR
This review aimed to present an overview summary of trauma, its incidence, and the current evidence related to the use of the Glasgow coma scale and the full outline of unresponsiveness score in the prediction of traumatized patients’ outcomes in intensive care units.

Significance of computed tomography scans in head injury

TLDR
CT scanning is the primary modality of choice in the diagnostic work up of patients with acute head trauma for identifying the various intracranial consequences following head injury especially within 48 hours which helps in the initial assessment, treatment planning, follow up and long term management of patients.

Diagnostic testing for acute head injury in children: when are head computed tomography and skull radiographs indicated?

TLDR
Intracranial injury may occur with few or subtle signs and symptoms, especially in infants younger than 1 year, and the relative risk for intracrania injury is increased almost fourfold in the presence of a skull fracture, although the absence of a skulls fracture does not rule out intrac Cranial injury.

The profile of CT scan findings in acute head trauma in Orotta Hospital, Asmara, Eritrea

TLDR
The high prevalence of head trauma related CT findings justify the use of CT in acute head trauma in Eritrea, however; it should be done only when clinically indicated in order to reduce cost and avoid unnecessary irradiation.

Predictors of positive CT scans in the trauma patient with minor head injury.

TLDR
Routine cerebral CT scanning of patients with minor head injuries has been advocated as a screening procedure for hospital admission and characteristics of the trauma patient with a minor head injury, including Glasgow Coma Scale of 13-15, were analyzed as possible predictors.

TRAUMA RADIOLOGY: IMPORTANCE OF COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY SCANS IN ACUTE TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

TLDR
The role of Computed tomography (CT) as the primary modality of choice in the initial assessment of head injury patients as it is widely available, faster and highly accurate in detecting skull fractures and brain parenchymal lesions is discussed.

Clinical predictors of abnormality disclosed by computed tomography after mild head trauma.

TLDR
Intracranial lesions cannot be completely excluded clinically on head-trauma patients who have loss of consciousness or amnesia, even if the Glasgow Coma Scale score is 15.4, regardless of age, mechanism of injury, or clinical findings.
