Customer Question

I had a brain bleed 6 weeks ago. This is from my recent ct scan, but I don't know what it means.. Can anyone put it in simple terms and tell me what type of hemorrhage this is ICH, SAH?? "No acute intracranial hemorrhage, mass effect, mass lesion, acute
infarct or extraaxial fluid collection is identified. Previous right
intraparenchymal and intraventricular hemorrhage no longer seen.
There is some residual encephalomalacia sided previous intraparenchymal
hemorrhage on the right. Nonspecific bilateral white matter lesions are noted in each cerebral hemisphere, most likely due to small vessel ischemic disease. Cavitated lacunar infarct in the pons on the right, unchanged."

I don't have the scan from 6 weeks ago. Just the most recent: EXAM: CT HEAD W-O CONTRASTCLINICIAN'S HISTORY: INTRAVENTRICULAR INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGEHISTORY REPORTED TO TECHNOLOGIST: recheck head bleed- see prior on
pacs to compare-COMPARISON: 7/25/2016*Dose reduction techniques using the adjustment of the mA and/or kV
according to patient size and/or use of AEC or iterative
reconstruction were used in the acquisition of this exam.*TECHNIQUE: Axial images were obtained through the brain without IV
contrast material.FINDINGS:No acute intracranial hemorrhage, mass effect, mass lesion, acute
infarct or extraaxial fluid collection is identified. Previous right
intraparenchymal and intraventricular hemorrhage no longer seen. There
is some residual encephalomalacia sided previous intraparenchymal
hemorrhage on the right. Nonspecific bilateral white matter lesions
are noted in each cerebral hemisphere, most likely due to small vessel
ischemic disease. Cavitated lacunar infarct in the pons on the right,
unchanged.IMPRESSION:No acute intracranial CT findings. Previous right intraparenchymal and
intraventricular hemorrhage no longer seen

Since it was described as "Previous right intraparenchymal and intraventricular hemorrhage no longer seen", it should have been ICH from intraparenchymal and SAH from intraventricular. You seem to have had both.
