My dad fell and hit his head, but the CT was clear and he was sent home. Why is he delirious and confused now?

In brief: No test is perfect.
Ct can miss early or small events and cannot see some lesions in the brain at all.
Sometimes the brain can swell after an event producing symptoms. He needs re-evaluation now.
