Episode 10: A Intracranial Hemorrhage Question

In this episode we encounter a fairly straight forward question about bleeding inside the skull. You wouldn’t think there would be that much difference about where that blood goes as to what happens, but the presentations and CT findings are can be very distinct making them good Step One material. There is a lot more to neurology but this is one area you can nail and get every question right very easily if you know the terminology and imaging findings.
