Traumatic intracranial hematoma Chronology of development CT scans MRT investigations Early hematomas Delayed hematomas

Summary

Within the first three hours after an accident with closed head injuries, we found a continuous increase in size of 30 extracerebral hematomas investigated repeatedly by CT. In the course of this early phase 72 intracerebral lesions in repeated CT investigations showed no similar appearance, neither in evolution nor in the dynamics of the developing contusional hemorrhage or as regards the clinical symptoms.
