  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

CT scan demonstrates the invaluable information about the parenchymal lesions of head injuries. The parenchymal lesions were classified into 6 categories; 1) isodensity without mass effect: I (-), 2) isodensity with mass effect: I ( + ), 3) high density : H, 4) high-low density complex: H-L, 5) low density: L, 6) diffuse cerebral swelling: DCS.

Glasgow coma scale (GCS) and outcome scale (GOS) were international practical scales for the evaluation of severity and prognosis of severe head injuries.

One hundred and seventy-four cases with severe head injury were analysed.
