  • Figure 1
    Axial CT

    Axial unenhanced CT scan shows a left parietal lobe intracranial haemorrhage.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    T2FLAIR

    T2 FLAIR shows a left parietal lobe haemorrhage and periventricular white matter hyperintensity (leukoencephalophathy).

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI)

    Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) confirms a left parietal lobe haemorrhage in a patient with small focal regions of signal drop out.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI)

    Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) shows multiple small focal regions of signal drop out.
