Although medical history and physical examination should lead to diagnosis of chronic subdural hematomas, 40% of these patients are likely to be misdiagnosed because many of these symptoms occur in other disease processes, such as transient ischemic attacks, stroke, dementia, and tumors. Computed tomography remains one of the most useful tools in the evaluation of these patients because of its rapidity, cost, availability, and pathologic sensitivity.
