Brains on the Brain

Looks like we’re having Neuro Week over here at Straight A Nursing Student…guess I’ve had the brain on the brain lately. Haha. I found a super-handy website of radiology tutorials that show how different neurological insults show up when scanned. While nurses are, of course, not radiologists, it is always good to have a basic idea of how these things look…if nothing else, you should be able to tell a “normal” scan from one that is super scary. For more detail than that, I read the radiologist’s report 🙂

For example, here’s a scan of an acute subdural hematoma…and there’s lots more where this came from. Enjoy!Subdural Hematoma
