Does head CT assist in the diagnosis of an adult with syncope? Evidence-based answer: The routine use of head computed tomography (CT) does not assist in the diagnosis of neurologically intact adults with syncope. However, in syncope patients with neurological symptoms or abnormal neurological examination results, head CT does provide important diagnostic information and should be done (SOR: B, cohort and chart review studies).
