Diagnosis of emergent intracranial lesions that require emergency treatment either medically or surgically in non-traumatic pediatric headaches is important. Red-flag signs and symptoms are commonly used as justification for neuroimaging; however, evidence on its diagnostic values is limited. The study aims to identify diagnostic values of red-flags and develop a clinical prediction score to help improve the diagnostic yield of neuroimaging.
