Study Of Traumatic Head Injuries By Using Computerized Tomography

Abstract

The computerized tomography have a role in diagnosing head injuries .Objective of this study was to studyhead injuries by using Computerized tomography .This study is done in Khartoum state in C.T department in Ibrahim Malik teaching hospital study was carried out in 54 Pts males and females aged (1-80 years) during January - March 2016, The study is concerning patients with head injuries the incidence of the head injuries is higher in males rather than females, and the occurrence had been at the age less than 25 years (24 cases44.4%).
