this is the NCCT HEAD report of my grand father whose age is 82.
i will be grateful to you if you kindly look into it and suggest us
about the treatment and chance of recovery. he is now being treated in ICU.
1. 4.2 X 3.0 cm sized hyper dense collection is seen in left medial temporal
lobe extending into the posterior limbed of left internal capsule and
into the ventricle
associated with dilatation of bilateral and third ventricle.
I am sorry to hear about your grandfather’s medical problems. The hyperdense area is probably due to a bleed. In the initial stages of clot retraction the area becomes more hyperdense. Given his age and the area involved, the prognosis may not be very good. However, this is something that cannot be assessed on net. Hence, please be in touch with his doctors as they can assess his condition best. Good Luck! Take care!
