Figure 1: Clinical nomogram predicting the intracranial injury of pediatric traumatic brain injury. To use the nomogram, draw a straight line upward from the patient’s characteristics of age, injury mechanism, loss of consciousness (LOC), motor weakness, scalp injury, bleeding per nose/ear, Glasgow Coma Score (GCS), and pupillary light reflex to the upper points scale. Take the sum of the points received for each predictor and locate this sum on the total points scale. Draw a straight line down to the predictive value scale to find the patient’s probability of intracranial injury
