Axial CT images through the lateral ventricles reveal a large crescentic
extra-axial fluid collection on the left side. The fluid is low-density
but higher density than CSF and is consistent with subacute blood. A smaller
amount of high-density acute blood is present more posteriorly. The lateral
ventricles and midline structures are shifted to the right.
Higher CT images show similar findings.
