Patient presented with coup-contrecoup trauma most notably seen in the inferior right frontal region.
Swoop images aided the physician in visualization of thin subdural collection not seen on portable CT.
Patient presented in extremis requiring intubation and sedation.
Swoop imaging aided the physician in clearly delineating the large right-side infarct and appropriately dating the older left-sided infarcts. On portable CT, all infarcts looked similar.
Brain Tumor with Herniation
Patient presents with a multicentric glioblastoma and deteriorating mental status following a biopsy.
Swoop imaging aided the physician in diagnosing right-sided uncal herniation not appreciated on any prior imaging, including pre-op MRI and post-op CT.
Overshunting Resulting in Subdural Collection
Severely developmentally delayed adult patient with acute hydrocephalus presented with significant mental status deterioration necessitating emergent ICU admission with intubation and external ventricular drainage.
Portable CT demonstrated successful drainage catheter placement with a decrease in ventricular size. Swoop images aided the physician in diagnosing subdural fluid collections indicative of over-drainage (not seen on CT).
