Traumatic brain injury is a significant public health concern, particularly in the pediatric population. It is considered to be a prominent contributor to mortality rates and the prevalence of chronic impairments on a global scale. The timely identification and precise evaluation of traumatic brain injury are of utmost importance to facilitate optimal treatment and enhance overall patient prognosis. Computed tomography is frequently employed as a diagnostic modality for pediatric traumatic brain injury owing to its widespread accessibility, rapid imaging capabilities, and capacity to identify intracranial lesions. Nevertheless, there are apprehensions regarding exposure to radiation and its potential enduring impacts on the developing brain, which have prompted inquiries about the suitability of computed tomography imaging. This review evaluates the role of computed tomography in diagnosing pediatric traumatic brain injury, discusses its benefits and limitations, and explores alternative imaging modalities that may help minimize radiation exposure while maintaining diagnostic accuracy. Combining imaging modalities improves brain trauma. Accurate diagnosis should improve pediatric TBI prognoses.
