Diagnosis in Head Injury.

Department of Neurosurgery, Catholic University Medical College, Seoul, Korea.
Before the 1970s there was no way to quantify the severity of head injury in groups of patients, but over the last two decades, medical care of the head-injured patient has evolved to a level at which clinical management decisions are based on actual measurement of relevant physiological variables and application of sound scientific principles. One of the most important reasons of such a progress is developments in medical technology. The technology has developed in a manner that now allows improved imaging of the brain as well as accurate measurement of variables such as intracranial pressure, cerebral blood flow, and brain electrical activity, all of which combine to greatly enhance the clinician's ability to monitor the injured brain. The author can not provide all the informations of advances that have taken place, or a comprehensive description of state-of-the-art technology hear, because of limited spaces. It is only hoped that this paper would afford a useful reference for those seeking newer concepts in diagnosis of head injury.
