Role of Non-Contrast CT Brain in Evaluation of Patients with Headache

Dr. P. Suresh [4] | Dr. Meghanath .N | Dr. Shashwath P

Abstract: Headache is the most frequently suffered illness by human beings and affects wide range of population with a variety of etiology. The primary headache disorders which include migraine, cluster and tension-type headaches, account for the majority of headaches, while secondary headaches which are those with underlying pathology (e. g. tumours) are far less common. Most patients presenting with headache in the primary care setting do not have serious underlying conditions. The relative rarity of secondary headaches compared with the large number of patients with primary headache raises concerns about the wisdom of routine studies like computed tomography of brain to diagnose intracranial causes of headache.
