Fig 1-4 : GE T2*-weighted images demonstrate a right parasagittal hematoma (involving both the paracentral lobule and the superior frontal gyrus), along with subarachnoid and intraventricular hemorrhage (observe the hypointense appearance of the right superior frontal and precentral sulci and the superior part of the interhemispheric fissure, note the hypointensity of the fluid in the dependent portions of both lateral ventricles). Multiple punctate hypointensities (microbleeds), involving mainly the cortical and cortical/subcortical regions of the right hemisphere are also noted (a smaller number of microbleeds were detected in the left hemisphere, there was no evidence of either ganglionic or infratentorial microbleeds on the patient's MR images).
