Part of the Evidence-Based Imaging book series (Evidence-Based Imag.)

Abstract

There are opportunities for avoiding unnecessary imaging in children who experienced accidental head trauma. This chapter reviews clinical decision rules that can inform when imaging should be performed or can be avoided. Advanced imaging techniques and their current role in the evaluation of pediatric brain injury are also reviewed.
