Brief description Head injuries are a common in children. Even a seemingly minor incident may cause serious brain injury. Whilst head computed tomography (CT) identifies all important injuries there is a growing recognition that radiation from CTs increases the risk of fatal brain cancers, especially in younger children. This study of 10,000 children with head injuries aims to investigate the best way to accurately predict which children should undergo a head CT, and which children do not require one.
