Aim: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the role of Computed Tomography (CT) as prime imaging modality with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as problem solving tool in the evaluation of Cranio-cerebral trauma.
Methods: The cross-sectional study was conducted at a Tertiary Care Hospital in Western Maharashtra from September 2020 to July 2022 and patients with craniocerebral trauma hospitalized were included. The study comprised a total of one hundred patients of craniocerebral trauma which was determined by taking into account 80% of the average of number of cases in the previous 3 years that were hospitalized.
Results: In the present study, the male population predominates, 75 patients, the female population being 25 patients. In this study, age group belonging to 21-30 years old had the highest incidence of craniocerebral trauma in the current study, with 30 cases (40.00%). In the other age groups, 10 patients were (13.33%) in 0-20, 20 (26.66 %) in 31-40, 6 (8.00 %) in 41-50, 3 (4.00 %) in 51-60 and 6 (8.00 %) above 61.  The highest incidence of cranio-cerebral trauma in females occurred in the age period of 21-30, with 10 individuals (40.00%). The other age groups were 9 patients (36.00%) aged 0-20, 2 (8.00%) aged 31-40, 3 (12.00%) aged 41-50, and 1 (4.00%) aged beyond 61.

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.
