Abstract

Chronic subdural hematoma is a common entity encountered mainly in the elderly population. In this paper, we aimed to perform a stereological analysis of the computed tomography (CT) images of a case with bilateral frontotemporoparietal chronic subdural hematoma. A 77 year old male patient presented with bilateral frontotemporoparietal chronic subdural hematoma. His medical history was significant for anticoagulation. The hematoma and intracranial volumes were measured on the CT images using stereological morph metrical analysis on the case. Cranial CT scanning revealed bilateral frontotemporoparietal chronic subdural hematoma with a width of 2 cm. Stereological volumetrically data was obtained before surgery. The hematoma and total intracranial volume may be important tools to determine on brain volumetric changes and can be estimated using the stereological method before surgery.
