      Abstract

      The evaluation of delayed sequelae of head injury is greatly facilitated by CT. This non-invasive technique provides us with the opportunity to evaluate the head trauma patients sequentially to detect the development and clinical significance of post-traumatic sequelae like delayed intracerebral hemorrhage, hydrocephalus, and post-traumatic atrophy.
