Minor head injury (MHI) is a major socioeconomic and health burden throughout the world. However, many controversies exist about the best acute management. In this thesis the extent of practice variation in acute management of MHI at the emergency department is investigated. Because CT decision rules and guidelines play a crucial role in the acute management of patients with MHI, this thesis focused on how these CT rules could be improved.
