Ann Emerg Med. 2014 Jun;63(6):657-65. doi: 10.1016/j.annemergmed.2014.01.009. Epub 2014 Feb 19.

From the abstract:

CONCLUSION:
Traumatic brain injury on CT is uncommon and clinically important traumatic brain injury is very uncommon in children with minor blunt head trauma when vomiting is their only sign or symptom. Observation in the emergency department before determining the need for CT appears appropriate for many of these children.
