prognosis.org head injuries

Two important tools have been published for prediction of outcome following head injury. They are:

CRASH

Developed using a clinical trial database of 10,008 patients, and validated on the IMPACT dataset. This model uses data available at presentation, with the optional inclusion of CT findings.

IMPACT

Developed on a dataset of >8000 patients, this model uses lab data as well as CT findings.

These are discussed at length in recent review articles.
