POST-TRAUMATIC RIGHT FRONTAL CONTUSION


This is the CT scan of a 24-year old person man who met with a road-traffic accident. He was riding a two-wheeler, without wearing helmet. CT scan shows right frontal contusion, with mass effect. There is fracture of overlying frontal bone. Treatment is conservative in the initial stage with anti-cerebral edema measures and anti-epileptic drugs. Surgery may be needed if mass effect increases and there is drop in GCS score.

I am a doctor with 25 years experience. I have worked as a neurologist for about 20 years. Educating public and healthcare professionals is very dear to me. This is possible due to my interactions with thousands of patients and their caregivers. I salute the patients who suffer and it is our duty to minimise suffering by preventing diseases and ensuring prompt diagnosis and treatment of those already affected.
