CT Brain - Subdural Haematoma (SDH) - bilateral

  • This CT scan shows subdural haematomas on both sides - larger on the left
  • The blood is of lower density (darker) than the adjacent cerebral cortex, indicating the subdurals are chronic
  • A small volume of high density (white) material in the right subdural haematoma indicates relatively recent bleeding

Clinical features

  • Headaches for 2 months following commencement of anticoagulation therapy for atrial fibrillation
