Abstract

Head injury is a major public health problem with higher morbidity and mortality in young people and continues to be one of the most common clinical problems treated by neurosurgeon. In 1973 Hounsfield introduced computerized scanning of head. Invention of CT scan was a major breakthrough in management of head trauma patients.
This technique involved no hazards or discomfort for the patient, and structural disease processes affecting the brain were identified with a clarity exceeding traditional methods. Neuroradiologic practice was transformed overnight and Hounsfield was subsequently awarded the Noble prize for medicine.

Keywords: Head injury, Computed tomography (C.T Scan), Health problem.
