Why is a head CT no longer indicated after 24 hours of a head trauma? Is it b/c a neurologic problem would be obvious from H&P after that time frame?

Why is a head CT no longer indicated after 24 hours of a head trauma? Is it b/c a neurologic problem would be obvious from H&P after that time frame?
