Since its introduction in 1991, the Marshall CT classification has become largely accepted for its descriptive and predictive value. For example, the IMPACT (International Mission for Prognosis and Analysis of Clinical Trial in TBI) prognostic model applies the Marshall CT score for 6-month outcome prediction in patients with moderate to severe TBI 1).

The Marshall CT classification was, however, not designed for outcome prediction, and in 2005, Maas et al redesigned it for 6-month mortality prediction, resulting in the Rotterdam CT score 2).
