Chronic Subdural Hematoma | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Diagnosis of a chronic subdural hematoma begins with a complete medical history and physical exam. The doctor may order tests, such as a cranial CT scan. A cranial MRI or cerebral angiogram can also show hematomas. In infants, diagnosis and treatment involve the removal of fluid through a needle inserted in the brain.
