The authors evaluate current thinking as to when psychiatrists should call for computed tomography (CT). They discuss changes in the CT scan in CNS disorders likely to be seen by psychiatrists. The CT scan can be of considerable aid when the diagnosis is uncertain, especially since studies have shown that organic brain disease is underrecognized in psychiatric patients. Six case histories illuminate how CT provides diagnostic assistance.
