Bilateral subdural haemorrhages

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Presentation

Elderly patient with rapid onset memory loss and headaches.

Bilateral subdurals. Giving contrast often helps better delineate isodense subdural collections, by not only rendering the cortex hyperdense, but also outlining the vessels. 

Case Discussion

CT of the brain demonstrates bilateral subdural haemorrhages which on the right is isodense with the adjacent brain. 

Giving contrast often helps better delineate isodense subdural collections, by not only rendering the cortex hyperdense, but also outlining the vessels. In this case a CTA was performed, showing the vessels (which travel in the subarachnoid space) displaced centrally by the collections.
