Introduction: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an extremely common and potentially devastating problem. Objectives: The main objective of the study is to find the intracranial CT-scan findings in patients of head injury. Material and methods: This descriptive study was conducted in Punjab health Department during 2019. This is an analysis of prospectively recorded data of all head injury patients who presented for CT scanning. CT scan was recommended for all patients with moderate and severe head injury (GCS 3–12). Results: The data was collected from 357 patients. The mean age of the patients was 29.9±16.7 years, and 74.5% were male. The major causes of head injury were Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs; 59%), falls (18.7%) and assaults (12.9%). Majority of the injuries were of moderate severity with GCS 9–12. Conclusion: It is concluded that high yield and diversity of CT scan findings in head trauma patients justifies the appropriate use of CT in diagnosis and management of suspected head trauma patients.
