What diagnostic tests are employed in the emergency room?

injuryThe most common diagnostic investigation of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in the ER is the CAT scan. CAT is an acronym for Computerized Axial Tomography. It is basically an X-ray that is computerized to produce images. In cases where the Traumatic Brain injury (TBI) occurs deeper inside the brain and not on the superficial aspects of the brain, a CAT will likely not detect a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Hence when there is no bleeding or bruising of the surface of the brain, a CAT will not detect Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
