Emergency room decision-making for urgent cranial computed tomography: selection criteria for subsets of non-trauma patients.

Tung, Christer; Lindgren, Arne LU ; Siemund, Roger LU and van Westen, Danielle LU (2014) In Acta Radiologica 55(7). p.847-854
Abstract
Computed tomography (CT) of the brain is used extensively in the urgent work-up of patients with a suspicion of intracranial pathology, but is often normal. Previously proposed selection criteria aim at limiting the ordering of urgent cranial CT in the non-trauma population, while maintaining high sensitivity for diagnoses demanding immediate attention.
