High resolution CT scanning in patients with post-traumatic head pain is superior to conventional radiography fordetecting fractures and other lesions of the facial structures. This is an important consideration, since suchlesions may be responsible for the post-traumatic pain. Direct axial and coronal scanning is adequate fordiagnosis in most cases; multiplanar reconstructions can be done to obtain sagittal and other views. The radiationdose and cost of CT are comparable to those of conventional tomography.
