Head CT (computed tomography) radiology search pattern

For those aspiring radiologists out there, has anyone ever explained to you what you should do when you sit down at the PACS station to look at a head CT?

For those non-radiologists out there, have you ever wondered what exactly is going through a radiologists mind as they look through the images?

This video attempts to demystify a lot of that by showing exactly how you might sit down and look at a head CT on your own. It starts from the beginning and shows you what kind of images you have and where to begin as you scroll through.

The level of this video is appropriate for medical students, junior residents, and trainees in other specialties who have an interest in neuroradiology. It may also be of interest to those with an interest in radiology who are simply curious to learn more about radiology.
