There is a right intraparenchymal haemorrhage centred in the right basal ganglia with a surrounding rim of oedema which causes mild effacement of the posterior body of the right lateral ventricle but no midline shift.
CTA COW (not shown) normal.
This patient had a documented history of poorly controlled hypertension. In this setting, no further imaging is required as the chances of there being an underlying lesion causing this haemorrhage is remote. In a younger patient, especially if no hypertensive history was present, then seeking out a mass or vascular lesion would be important.
