Most healthcare workers have difficulty understanding CT scans of the brain. This is most likely related to the complexity of the brain’s anatomy. Understanding the cross-sectional anatomy of the normal, injured or diseased brain can help improve awareness of common brain injuries that can be diagnosed with a CT scan. 


The goal of this brain injury and computed tomography (CT) scan continuing education program is to provide imaging technologists and nurses with adequate information on common disorders that affect the brain, and the role of the CT scan. After completing this module, you will be able to:
  • List the common types of disorders that can be diagnosed with a contrast and non-contrast CT scan.
  • Discuss what to look for on a normal CT scan of the brain
  • Describe the common causes of bleeding in the brain, and how they appear on a CT scan
