Realtime comments disabled
Hemorrhagic right frontal and middle cerebral infarction with subfalcine herniation.
Hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage with extension into posterior horn of lateral ventricle.
Intraventricular/Thalamic hemorrhage most likely ruptured aneurysm, single cut hard to see the nidus !
Not really sure, but I'm just gonna guess meningioma. Looks fascinating though.
It looks like a intraventricular or intracerebral hemorrage due to skull fracture on the left, putting pressure on the brain (which is causing a subdural hematoma?)? My med student husband, who hasn't had a chance to see too many CT scans yet thinks this
Intracerebral hemorrhage with midline shift , ruptured MCA aneurysm.
Hey this looks like a rat superimposed on the CT film:-)! But do they shift brain matter aside?
Intracerebellar hematoma/hemorrage?!? Caused by head trauma (accident, sports, bullet wound etc)?!?
Not a doctor or medical person, but it looks like shaken baby syndrome with brain bleed.
MCA aneurysm, intraparenchymal hemorrhage. No mass effect is a bit strange though.
fracture of skull with intraparenchymal hemorrhage
ruptured aneurysm of the middle cerebral artery?
concussion? looks like meninges are torn from the front of the skull
what brain region is it in?
its a tumor..
