Sample text

Acute (hours to days old) hematomas are typically hyperdense ‘‘crescentic’’ extracerebral collections. Subacute (days to weeks old) hematomas 36 tend to be isodense to gray matter; therefore, it is easy to miss them on a quick glance at a CT scan. To avoid missing this finding, compare the size of the sulci over the left and right cerebral convexities. Absence of sulci or asymmetric sulci should raise suspicion. Always check that the sulci extend to the inner table of the calvarium, and evaluate the gray–white matter interface for inward buckling.

The hematoma is mildly hypointense to brain on T1W imaging and markedly hypointense on T2W imaging. Also noted are extensive sequelae of small vessel ischemic disease in the deep periventricular white matter and in the deep gray matter of the basal ganglia.
