This is the report:
A CT scan of the brain was performed
There is an extra-axial, crescent shaped hyperdense lesion measuring approx. 7.29mm from the inner table of the skull and 32.02 mm in length with associated perilesional edema seen in the right temnporo-occipital regions. Blood densities are also seen both in tentorial leaves, There are also multiple pockets of air seen in the right temporo-occipital regions. The brainstem as well as the cerebellum are unremarkable.
The ventricular systems are well visualized and show no evidence of dilation nor displacement. The cerebellopontine angle, sella and orbits are unremarkable. There is a complete linear fracture seen in the right temporal region extending to the right occipital region and right sphenoid bone. soft tissue densities are seen within the right mastoid air cells , right middle ear cavity and rigght sphenoid sinus. An irregular calcific density is also seen within the brain parenchyma in the right occipital region which may relate to osseous fracture segment or debris.
