Rationale:
1. Subdural hematoma is an accumulation of blood between the dura and the brain. These injuries usually result from injuries to the venous system and can be slow growing with several days to weeks between the time of injury and presentations of symptoms.
2. Epidural hematoma is an accumulation of blood between the dura and the skull. This injury typically involves small arteries and can be rapidly progressive.
3. Subarachnoid hematoma occurs between the arachnoid covering and the brain. It is a frequent etiology of stroke.
4. Intracerebral hematoma is bleeding in the tissues of the brain and may be deep seated.
