Conference paper


Besides computerised tomography (CT), MRT is a very important tool of neuroimaging (Spetzler et al. 1985). It is rarely done in acute severe head injury because of technical problems, for instance mechanical life support devices (Han et al. 1984). However, it has been seldom performed years after a severe head injury, probably because of its financial expenses.
