Abstract

The use of computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis and management of decompression sickness and diving air embolism has not been previously reported. Two unusual cases of neurological dysbarism are presented in which CT was helpful in the postrecompression evaluation and treatment. CT showed areas of infarction and of edema of the brain. The role of CT in managing dysbaric diving accidents is discussed.
