  • Figure 1
    Axial non-enhanced CT through the craniocervical junction

    Axial CT image through the craniocervical junction demonstrates extensive hyperdense subdural haematoma around the upper cord (see arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Sagittal midline CT

    Sagittal midline image from initial CT examination demonstrates extension of the hyperdense subdural haematoma down to T1 (see arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Sagittal T1 image

    Sagittal T1 image demonstrates extensive spinal subdural collection consistent with blood products (see arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Sagittal STIR image

    Sagittal STIR image demonstrates extensive spinal subdural collection consistent with blood products (see arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Sagittal T2 MR of the thoracolumbar spine

    Sagittal T2 MR of the thoracolumbar spine (off midline) demonstrates extension of the subdural haematoma in to the lumbar canal (see arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    Coronal FLAIR image of the brain

    Coronal FLAIR image demonstrating a shallow tentorial subdural haematoma (see arrows).
