Sir,

In this article, the authors validated the usefulness of mobile computed tomography (CT) scans in 10,000 consecutive patients and showed its remarkable use in safer and quicker assessment of cranial injury without the need for moving the patients, as well as focused, rapid treatment thus saving precious time.[1] From a socioeconomic point of view also, a mobile CT scan was considered to be an effective modality. Resolution of the mobile CT is no less inferior to that taken by a conventional machine. The mobile CT is a useful modality, especially in societies where a large number of road traffic injuries occur. Investigating its contribution to the treatment outcome should be the next logical step.
