Computed Tomography is widely available, rapid, permits close monitoring of unstable patients, compatible with respirators and other mechanical support devices and can be used with patients whose medical and occupational histories are not available. It is very sensitive in detecting acute hematomas and depressed fractures that require emergency surgery. The study comprised a total of one hundred and fifty patients (150) with head injury admitted to Teaching and General Hospital. According to the present study, intracerebral haematoma (58%) was the most common lesion noted in patients who expired followed by subdural haemorrhage 46%. Extradural haemorrhage 7.50% was the least common lesion noted in these patients.
