  • Figure 1
    Non-contrast CT head

    A fluid attenuation subdural collection is seen along the right fronto-temporal cerebral convexity. It appears of relatively highter attenuation as compared to the intraventricular CSF.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Trauma;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Non-contrast CT head

    Right frontal cerebral convexity subdural collection is seen with subtle prominence of the contralateral CSF space.

  • Figure 3
    Non-contrast CT head

    NCCT reveals right frontal cerebral convexity subdural hygroma.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Trauma;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Non-contrast CT head

    Right frontal subdural hygroma is well visualised. There is suggestion of a small left subdural hygroma on these higher cuts as well.
