Hyperacute epidural haematoma isodense with the brain on computed tomography

Abstract

On the CT scan, epidural haematoma usually appears as a biconvex mass lesion with a higher density than the brain tissue. The so-called ‘‘hyperacute’’ extradural haematoma displays ‘‘bubbles’’ iso or hypodense within the hyperdense mass [1].
