We report a case of an acute hypertensive, intracerebral hemorrhage on post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) in a decomposed corpse. In clinical radiology, the appearance of blood on cross-sectional imaging is used to estimate the age of intracranial hemorrhage. The findings from this case indicate that characteristics of intracerebral blood on PMCT provide a still frame of the hemorrhage, as it was at the time of death. This observation suggests that the appearance of blood on PMCT may be used to estimate the age of an intracerebral hemorrhage but not to estimate the post-mortem interval. Â© 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
