A 51-year-old female asked:
What does no acute changes means in a head ct scan result, this is my first ct scan?

Scan: Typically the radiologist is referring to some type of acute problem such as stroke, head bleed, subarachnoid or mass. I would assume you were imaged for an acute injury or headache in a medical setting. "No acute changes" is a good sign.
