Uncal herniation forces the midbrain to shift and rotate so that the Neuroimaging of Traumatic Brain Injury Fig. 18 Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) computed tomography (CT) vs. gradient echo (GRE). (a) Patient status post motor-vehicle collision underwent CT and magnetic resonance imaging on the same day. Many of the DAI lesions on GRE images are difficult to detect on noncontrast CT. (b) Numerous foci of DAI in the left frontal subcortical white matter is difficult to appreciate on non-contrast head CT.

Atrophy of vermis and cerebellum is also not uncommon. 5 Contusion The two broad categories of forces resulting in primary brain parenchymal injury are direct impact force and inertial (accel­ eration and deceleration, rotational) forces. Direct impact force 20 results in cerebral contusion, skull fracture, epidural hematoma, and inertial forces result in DAI (discussed later) and intracere­ bral hematoma. Contusion involves primarily the cortex of the brain because of deformational forces and may extend to sub­ cortical region.

One of the common complications re­ lated to the posterior fossa venous EDH is venous sinus throm­ bosis or venous sinus injury. CT venogram is a quick and defini­ tive imaging test to address this clinical situation (▶ Fig. 6). Often EDH is associated with more favorable outcomes com­ pared with subdural hematoma or subarachnoid hemorrhage. 3), the presence of EDH lowers the score compared with the score when EDH is not present. 3 Subdural Hematoma An SDH is a collection of blood between the inner dural layer and arachnoid and is the result of stretching or tearing of cortical veins traversing the subdural space.
