CECT scans are helpful in detecting small isodense aSDHs. The normally enhancing cortical veins are displaced inward by the extraaxial fluid collection. 40 Osborn's Brain Imaging Perfusion CT. CT or xenon perfusion scans may demonstrate decreased cerebral blood flow (CBF) and low perfusion pressure, which is one of the reasons for the high mortality rate of patients with aSDHs. The cortex underlying an evacuated aSDH may show hyperemic changes with elevated rCBF values. Persisting hyperemia has been associated with poor outcome.

It is the number, severity, and extent of the hemorrhages that distinguishes DVI from DAI.

The encasing membranes, especially the thicker superficial layer, may enhance. MR FINDINGS. MR can be very helpful in identifying sSDHs, especially small lesions that are virtually isodense with underlying brain on CT scans. Signal intensity varies with hematoma age but is less predictable than on CT, making precise “aging” of subdural collections more problematic. In general, early subacute SDHs are isointense with cortex on T1WI and hypointense on T2WI but gradually become more hyperintense as extracellular methemoglobin increases (2-36A), (2-37A), (237B).
