Figure 5–3. Heterogeneity of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) shown by computed tomography (CT) scans of six different patients with severe TBI, defined as a Glasgow Coma Scale score of <8.Highlighting the significant heterogeneity of pathological findings, CT scans represent patients with epidural hematomas (EDH), contusions and parenchymal hematomas (Contusion/Hematoma), diffuse axonal injury (DAI), subdural hematoma (SDH), subarachnoid hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage (SAH/IVH), and diffuse brain swelling (Diffuse Swelling).Source.
