Tests and Diagnosis for Skull Fractures

Tests and Diagnosis

A diagnosis relies on physical examination and imaging studies of the head. During the examination, the physician obtains a complete medical history of the patient and asks how the injury occurred.
Imaging studies may include X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan of the head. The preferred diagnostic imaging test is CT scan because it can show highly detailed images of the bone, tissue and other structures in the head. Also, these imaging studies are used to check for possible injury to the brain.
