Routine use of axial computerized tomography in neurotraumatology has very much facilitated rapid diagnosis and exact classification of traumatic intracranial hemorrhages. As a result, it has also become possible to distinguish intracerebral hematomas from so-called space-occupying contusions. This was hardly possible using earlier, conventional methods (echoencephalography, carotid angiography) which were associated with a high rate of error. It is, however, necessary to examine our former attitude toward surgical indications.
