Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
Computed tomography (CT) of the head is the diagnostic standard for identifying intracranial injury. Routine CT of all minor head injury patients would result in a large number of normal CT scans being performed with associated risks of radiation exposure and waste of health care resources. Clinical decision rules for minor head injury patients incorporate a number of individual characteristics grouped together to provide a tool for identifying those at risk of intracranial injury and in need of CT. We performed a systematic review of the individual characteristics that contribute to clinical decision making and calculated likelihood ratios of significance for each.
