Tutorial 2: Imaging of Head Trauma
In the emergency setting, accurate clinical assessment in combination with appropriate imaging is key to the identification of patients that would benefit from urgent surgical intervention. This chapter aims to familiarise students with the role of imaging for patients with head trauma. It is important that students understand the basic concepts and patterns of traumatic intracranial haemorrhage. After completion of this tutorial students should be able to describe the key CT appearances of traumatic intracranial haemorrhage and associated mass effect.
