Abstract

Portable computed tomography is mostly used in operating rooms, intensive care units, emergency service and interventional operation units. It provides a good diagnosis method in intensive care unit patients. It determines bleeding, hydrocephaly, cerebral edema which may occur in cranial cases. As a result, it gives early patient intervention chance.  Radiation exposure is the greatest factor decreasing usage indication. It is predicted that the use would increase by minimalizing radiation ratio with technological developments.
