Hi all,

Im 22 year old..I met with an accident 2 years back when i was goung on bike.i fell down directly down on head back side making no wounds on body.

There is very light bleeding on point of impact on back side of skull.i went to ortho spl doctor.

He made a xray of neck and resolved it quikly..

I asked him about head impact.he said there is nothing to worry.its just a normal bleed.

I never felt any dizziness or any issue post this event. But since 2months im having light pain in point of impact where there is a very small swellout.

Im not scared about this but for confirming it tobe serious or not... as i remember impact on head at time of accident was quite remarkable.

Pls suggest me whether i have to go for a CT SCAN OR MRI SCAN

      Hi sri;   yes there is a good body imagery, known as CT Scan that images your entire body.  Another is called an MRI which would be more likely to tell you of any issues in brain/skull......it takes minute section pictures of each sstep of your internal body matter........also a PET scan is always used for brain and body tissue imaging........your GP can refer you to your local hospital clinic and they can/should be able to organize what they think is necessary.............................if you are having problems with your vision (double vision at times/pupils not dilating in the dark?), headaches/dizziness....then it is a very good idea to have this checked out........good luck...............Bron

    GOOD INFORMATION.  THE  ONLY THING I WOULD ADD IS TO NOT USE A CAT SCAN.  IF I'M RIGHT IT USES RADIATION AND FOR A BODY SCAN USE TECHNOLOGY THAT IS NOT RADIATION.  JUST ASK THE QUESTIONS SO THE INFO CAN ENABLE YOU TO MAKE A CHOICE YOU WILL NOT REGRET.     

    I PERSONALLY WOULD NOT HAVE A BODY SCAN - A FEW ARTICLES HAVE DECLARED IT NON BENEFICIAL.    THESE MACHINES ARE PAID FOR BY ENCOURAGING WIDESPREAD USE SO BE DISCERNING AND INFORMED.  GOD BLESS YOU
