Network (PECARN) traumatic brain injury (TBI) prog- Results PECARN had a sensitivity and specificity of 92.3 nostic rules is a scoring system for prediction of the need and 40.6%, respectively, in predicting ciTBI in children for computed tomography (CT) scanning in children with under 2 years and 100.0 and 57.8%, respectively, in indi- mild TBI. However, its validation has not been assessed viduals between the ages of 2 and 18. PECARN rule had a in developing countries. Therefore, the present study was proper calibration in prediction of ciTBI and CT scan find - designed to assess the value of PECARN rule in identifica - ings.
