Abstract:

Head injury is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the global pediatric population. While Head CT is the preferred imaging modality to guide management, it contains inherent risks of radiation-induced malignancy. The PECARN criteria can identify clinically important injuries and can obviate potentially unnecessary radiation exposure.
