    An axial GRE T2*-WI

    An axial GRE T2*-weighted image demonstrating a right-sided parasagittal lobar hematoma with a mass effect on adjacent sulci. Subarachnoid extension of the hematoma is noted (observe the hypointense appearance of the...

An axial GRE T2*-weighted image demonstrating a right-sided parasagittal lobar hematoma with a mass effect on adjacent sulci. Subarachnoid extension of the hematoma is noted (observe the hypointense appearance of the right superior frontal and precentral sulci, in addition to the interhemispheric fissure).
 
An axial GRE T2*-WI through the rostral portions of the bodies of the lateral ventricles. Two small superficial hematomas are seen involving the right parietooccipital region. The larger described hematoma in Fig. 1 extends to this level. The subarachnoid extension of the hematoma is noted.
 
 
 
An axial GRE T2*-WI at a more caudal level demonstrating a right-sided punctate hypointensity (microbleed) involving the gray/white matter junction (arrow). The previously described larger hematoma (Fig. 1) extends to this level. Subarachnoid extension of the hematoma is noted. Hemorrhagic diffuse axonal injury, cavernous angiomas and calcifications are included in the differential diagnosis of such punctate hypointense foci.
 
An axial GRE T2*-WI at the level of the isthmus rhombencephali demonstrating a right-sided temporal microbleed involving the periventricular white matter. Note the hypointensity of the fluid in the dependent portions of both lateral ventricles due to the intraventricular extension of the hemorrhage.
 
At a slightly more caudal level another right-sided petechial hemorrhage is seen involving the cortical/subcortical region (arrow). Note that the hypointensity of the fluid in the dependent portions of both lateral ventricles is due to the intraventricular extension of the hemorrhage.
