An analytic method for detecting isodense subdural fluid collections from computed tomography (CT) scan pixel attenuation data is presented. Analysis of 44 CT scan levels from 8 patients with isodense subdural hematomas (ISDH) and 50 CT scan levels from 15 patients without ISDH indicates 6% false positive and 3% false negative errors if the analysis is restricted to noncontrast CT scans that demonstrate subcalvarial bilateral cortical attenuation symmetry in the pictorial display.
