    What does a CT scan of the Brain (Head) show?

    Posted by Ravi Sohal on Fri, May 28, 2010

    brain head ct scan pictureCT scans are frequently used to evaluate the brain (head).  Brain CTs are typically ordered for many different symptoms such as headaches, weakness, seizures, confusion, etc to exclude a tumor, aneurysm or infection.  They are also used as a follow up test for patients with strokes, bleeds or surgery. Below are a few common diagnoses that a CT scan of the brain detect.

    Aneurysm - Aneurysms are ballooning of vessels that risk rupturing. If blood leaks from the aneurysm patients describe the headache as a thunderclap and sharp/shooting pains. Patients can also have stroke-like symptoms with weakness, slurred speech and confusion. A Brain CT scan is the first test done to evaluate for a bleed.

    Tumors - Tumors can be primary (from brain tissue) or secondary (from other sites, eg breast cancer). These typically present with headaches, weakness, and seizures. Head CT scans can be done without or with IV contrast to detect tumors.

    Bleeding - Hemorrhage, aka bleeding, in the brain can be from trauma, ruptured aneurysms or tumors that bleed. CT scans are very sensitive to recent bleeds (especially within a few hours).

    Stroke - Also known as a "brain attack", stroke refers to a blocked artery that deprives a part of the brain of blood (and therefore oxygen). This part of the brain loses it function and patients present with weakness, slurred speech, difficulty walking and on occasion, headaches. Head CT scans are a good first test to detect a stroke or determine if the symptoms are caused by another factor such as a bleed or a tumor.

    An CT scan of the brain will evaluate:


    A CT scan of the brain will include parts of the sinuses. Though not used to primarily look for sinus disease, the brain CT can pick up thickening of the sinus tissue (mucosa) or fluid in the sinuses.


    Brain CT scans can include parts of the orbits. It can pick up injury to the orbit and  diseases of the orbits such as large tumors, bleeds, inflammation, etc.


    The skull is included in a brain CT scan and can detect bone tumors, infection and fractures. It can also detect bleeds in the space between the skull and brain (aka epidural and subdural bleeds).

    Brain matter

    The white and gray matter of the brain are well seen. CT can detect tumors, infection, bleeds, stroke and congenital defects. Part of the pituitary gland, optic nerves and upper brainstem are also evaluated. A "routine" head CT is done without contrast.


    These are the fluid filled structures inside the brain that help circulate cerberospinal fluid. Tumors and bleeds can extend into these structures and cause blockage which can lead to headaches, confusion and problems with walking for example. 

    Your Brain CT Scan

    A brain CT scan generally takes about 5 minutes or so to complete. If you are going for one remember to remove hair pins, piercings, earrings and necklaces as these metallic objects can interfere with the scan. Most scans are done without IV contrast. But if your doctor is looking for a tumor or infection this may be done with contrast.

    If you're insured, you may need to have your test authorized (approved) by your insurance company first. If you're uninsured and need to look up prices and buy an CT scan of the brain, you can use our website to look up CT scan costs and then purchase with your credit card.

    i had a brain ct scan and a brain mra scan yesterday. i put the earplugs in as far as i could so the noises were all right. i am not claustrophobic but i felt a little anxious, a little shortness of breath sometimes. 
    of course i am dealing with some difficulty trying to stay in the present but it's even harder than usual since my neurologist told me i had a stroke and i don't know what i am facing yet.

    I had a CT scan and it was fine. I've been experiencing headaches and dizziness. The staff was friendly and very efficient. I'm typically a bit OCD, but I had no problem at all with the scan.

    I have been having headaches and lightheadedness and I have to get a CT scan on my head. I am very afraid of needles and my question is, can they scan the head for tumors without contrast dye? And, if not can the dye for a head CT scan be taken by mouth? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Feel free to email me at

    I had ct on brain recently because I have a lot of pressure on my head. They said I was fine. I hope they read it throughly because my left arm is somewhat numb.

    I had a trama alone and it took me down to my bed for about 2 hours I slept, when I woke up, I was drooling from the left side of my mouth, my face was numb, I was dragging my left leg. I went to the emergency room & was told I had drop foot, no CT scan or anything was done. I went for over 2 years before I found that I had an old stroke & a fresh bleed from that area in my gray matter. my life went down hill after I then found I had MS as well. my life is over. I can't do anything or go anywhere. heat & cold makes me have attacks where my feet and hands feel as if they are running via a old wringer washing machine. I am on opiate therapy but it doesn't help with all the pain issues and memory issues. lack of oxygen to my brain ...I am a pretty otherwise healthy 61 yr old woman who was healthy until I married a man who used Dursban pesticide along with other ones like it. I have divorced him but he will not take responsiblity for poisoning me. my life is ruined. all I do is cry because I am alone, on SSI stuck in KS where I have no family or friends. I need someone to save me. the spasms in my feet and hands are horrid.worse than labor pains.. no relief.. I feel like killing myself is this is it.. house arrest for life

There is definitely hope for you. Don't ever give up. God is with you and he is watching over you. That doesn't mean that we are going to have an easy life all of the time, but it does mean that he will never leave you or forsake you. Don't give up. You need to get you a bible and read.

    To Melissa, if you are still having chronic headaches, it maybe due to your lack of sleep (insomnia). My CT scan was normal, and my doctor advised me to get more rest from now on.

    My mother had an "episode" of not remembering how to do routine dailt task such as pt her clothes on and turn off a light switch. She had a CT scan and was told she did not have a stroke, but needed to see a Neurologist to discuss the "changes" in the CT scan. Does anyone know what kind of changes these could be and what they afect?

    I was here looking for info on CT scans of the brain, as I am having one today, and I saw your post as well. It hurt me also to see how much you are hurting. I couldn't agree with Melissa more.

    I had a serious frontal lobe trauma 17 years ago. I was told to schedule a CAT scan, even this long after, to monitor healing and recovery since I still have cognitive problems.

    Im getting a cat scan tomorrow with and without contrast. I've read all your stories and think its best if all of you get together and gather all of your test results, present it to a specialist and see if every one of you have something in common that doctors haven't seen. My case is different from everyone's. I was Electrocuted (Electrically Shock) and fell after the cord shortest out. I was knocked unconscious and have been passing out out of nowhere every month. Good luck to you all and your health.

    My brother had a CT scan after a short coma (2 days). He had it on the second day before he woke up. The scan shows a normal brain but we were told it takes a week before the CT scan can show any we really need to do another CT scan after a week? 
    His memory is a bit off he can recognize people but not places. he wonders why this person is here (forgot I traveled back to where he is for example)?  
    Are these things normal for people after a coma. He went into coma because his sugar went down and blood pressure was very high.

I too look to Jesus to give me some rest when I don't know where to go. My mom probably has Alzheimer's or dementia and blood vessels may not be getting enough of blood to the brain. I just know that we all have to give it to God. You are in our prayers seek him and may God bless u.

    So sorry for all of you. I had a brain tumor some time ago. It invaded the ear canal mastoid bone, brain and so on. It was removed after a 22 hr. surgery and involved 5 different surgeons. Thank Almighty God that they were successful in removing it. I did lose the use (100%) of my left ear and the terrible pulsatile tinnitus the tumor was causing. Now, I have the same tinnitus symptom on the contralateral ear. Its making me crazy! I pray without ceasing to be healed. The CT scan shows nothing. I cannot understand it at all. The symptoms are identical to before. 
    Please, those among you who believe in our Lord Christ, pray for me—that the horrible tinnitus symptom will go away. Also, my bone marrow is failing to produce Hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets etc... because I have SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematoses) The doctors are trying to get the drug company to give us the drug. Treatment is $150,000 in medicine costs. The doctor can infuse the chemo which cost $19,000, but he is willing to waive all but $300 of his fee. Please pray too that I will get the drug and it will work. It does have the negative side effect of killing some patients right away and giving lymphoma cancer to some others. But, there is no other alternative really. 
    Please pray for me and my family as I shall pray for all of you.

    Paul, I would rather pray that Our Savior,healer, soon coming King, would touch you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes,and that in JESUS name you would be ever with healed,ever with delivered,ever with whole ..And no medication was needed whe the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus'garment she was set free and we all can be set free.. What ever is showing in my cat scan is going to be, no has already been paid for on the cross... Because no weapon formed against a child of God can prosper,we {who have been washed in the soul cleansing blood of the lamb} have the right to come before Him and recieve our healing. We need to do that 1st, clean out sin , eat pure, take supplements, gain knowlege about alturnative healing...Go with God its the only way... You don't need some thing thats cure is worse than the diease... I will continue to lift you, all of you up in prayer and you all do the same for me...Thanks Anita, Joy

    For all of you suffering from headaches I suffered all my life they only got really bad in the last 10 years. My drs tried a number of migraine meds and then finally went to narcotic pain meds, my easy fix was going gluten free, I'm happy to say that since June of this year I've been off gluten and wheat and within 3 days was headache free!! If you chose this route be sure to google all possible by-products of wheat, they use wheat as a filler in a number of items one main product is maltodextrin unless the ingredients state maltodextrin (made from corn) then don't eat it, it makes me suck everytime. I wish you all luck!

    AVAA, I sure hope you read the comments that are posted as a reply to you. I hope that you are well, as a year has passed since your post. Please know that you are not alone and your life is NOT over, nor is it wasted. Our Lord and Savior is with you. Take pride as a King's Kid that he will protect and love you. I was in a horse accident in June and now suffer from Epilepsy with complex partial seizures. Medications are not working and my quality of life has been severely reduced. We must have faith!!!! And we must be there for each other, as it is requested of us. Know that you have friends.

    I have been in pain since 1994. I was fourteen and on a snow skiing trip with my high school. A lady hit me head on; ruptured my spleen, broke my clavicle in two places and ruined my back. Unfortunately I did not find out that my back was ruined until two years later when I was cardio Kickboxing. MRIs reveal led spinal stenosis, herniated disks L4, L5 and S1. And 2 bulging disks that are pushing on my sciatic nerve. The agonizing pain even with a stimulator and strong meds. are not working. On top of this I have severe migraines. At fourteen my parents checked me into a migraine clinic where they burnt my veins trying to find a drug that would work. Now at thirty six, the migraines have gone from two to four days a w

    My husband, 52, had a stroke on Feb 10, 2013. They did a CT scan on him in the state he was in at the time (he was out of town). They did another one a few hours later when he slipped into unconsciousness. They said that the medication used for the CT scan causes bleeding in the brain of 6% of the people and he was in the 6%. He lost his life two days later to that brain bleed, My question is do they have to use fresh dye for each CT scan. I didn't have the prescence of mind to ask at the time and was not in that state at the time of the CT scans. Since the dye is what caused the bleed and the blood loss into the brain is what killed him, would a second CT scan have maded a difference in his losing his life since the dye is what caused the fatal turn of events. He had no previous shellfish allergies that we were aware of to have pointed to an iodine issue.

    Avaa, please don't give up hope. I know a bit about pain as, at times in the past I have suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia. It gets so bad, I go out of my body and say to my Self, "I wonder if she's going to make it this time or if this is the end of the road." I always make it through. There are two drugs that I take daily now - Tegretol and Lyrica - and they are helping. Keep reaching out to the medical community until they help you. I was 24 the first time I had an attack. I'll be 62 in July. I've been on Lyrica for 2.5 years and the rest of the time, I was on my own. That's 38 years of making a decision to live. I wish you well. Faith in a power greater than me has been invaluable, as others have said. Warmly, Lynnie

    I had CT, MRI, and PET scan of my brain, they all came back as normal. I suffered a severe traumatic brain injury in Feb of 2013. I was rear ended at close to 100 mph on the freeway. I'm currently suffering from left-sided hemiparesis, dysarthria, dysphagia, vision and vertigo problems. I was in a coma for 2 weeks and was in an wheelchair for the first month after the accident. My neurologist said that based on the scans he thinks that I'm ok! He says he doesn't know what's wrong with me! I don't know why the scans don't show any problems with my brain even though I'm physically disabled. I have no cognitive problems and I walk now, but I still can't work or drive or do some normal daily activities. I hope someone out there has an answer or has an idea of what's happening to me and why my scans are not showing anything.

    Hi, I has a CT scan a few weeks ago, and when they put the needle to put the dye into my arm, (they hadn't put the dye in yet, just the needle), I ended up having a small seizure. I have other symptoms such as headaches and blocked sinuses, my jaw keeps hurting and locking and it feels like there is fluid in my head. Was the seizure a normal occurance?

    Hi, I pray for all of you with injuries. It's been happening to me for about three weeks now it started as for some reason being really quiet when normally I am really talkative. Then I noticed the top of my head was sort of pounding. Id lay awake at night feeling like something was squishing my brain. It started to feel like blood was not getting to certain parts of my brain, I felt like I had to concentrate really hard to stay conscious. Now instead of pain or pressure or I feel nothing, just this almost flatness it feels like the top of my brain died? I don't think at ALL how I used to. I feel very dumb as well. They refuse to give me a ct scan. I feel the sensation everyday and every night. I sit alone in my bed I've lost weight I don't go out. I feel like literally a part of me has died. How nuts like I don't feel like the same person. And I keep praying to god to fix my brain but everybody just thinks I'm depressed when I'm totally not. I really think something horrible happened. And I have this annoying ringing in my ears like a flat line sound.

    I found that having my head put back in place has bounced me back from dragging myself places for many months to my feet. Praise God! 
    and for symptoms like Aava describes, I got help from Dr. Hugh Smith at or look up the information on his websites. you will find that his protocols will help detox your body. I promise this will help. I found much needed relief after working with these two providers. Parasites and micoplasmas are culprits to the majority of the ailments we humans suffer from. clean up your blood stream and you will see a difference.

    Been told to have a CT scan after having many 'vacant episodes' in a 24 hour period. The consultant wants to check just in case there's trauma or something there that shouldn't be. He also said that he may try and get my neurology appointment fast tracked. 
    I am glad I am on the NHS, for the nurse that I went to when the internet said attend your nearest A&E has done more in 10 minutes than my doctor in 12 months. Will post again and tell you how it is.

    i took a ct scan because i was feeling severe pains in the right side of my head ,and behind the right ear down to my neck. 
    the ct scan showed almost every thing to be normal,however it mentioned that my parassellar structures were unimpressive,it is said my optic were unimpressive.please what does this mean when the general impression after the text was written to be a normal ct scan.

    I came here looking for information what to think of a cat scan I had performed at the hospital. Memorial Day weekend in 1987 I was involved in a car wreck where I had a severe concussion and was in a coma for 3 days. In 1993 I developed type 1 diabetes and I have problems regulating my sugars, it is 100% me not seeing the consequence or able to understand what is going on with the insulin I take but I consistently take to much and need ambulances to treat sugars. I had a cat scan done to address this thinking it might show some trauma or something in the brain that might help understand what is going on beyond me being "stupid". The cat scan came back normal so I am not sure what the next step is. I know that I had to go on disability because of this and when they did several long evaluations that showed my thought processes were wrong and that my understanding levels are deficient. Any ideas on steps to take and if there is something else to check. Thanks

    Hi I got an excruciating headache last week that caused me to throw up . It came all of a sudden. I used to suffer from migraines every single day about 13 years ago and it stopped completely, until last week. I got a CT scan and it was negative. Now sporadically I get little pains in my head. What do you think that is?

    My sister went into Emergency and had a CT scan. Waiting for results to be read by Radiologist. 
    just came on suddenly. 
    I pray that God will be with you all and never give up. 
    There is strength in each of us, and God never gives up and we shouldn't either. 
    I pray for all of you and my sister now.. 
    Blessings to all of you!

    I had CT scans without contrast 3 times in two days. I am afraid that they used excessive amounts of radition.

    I had a CT scan yesterday it all seems so surreal. Not sure what's happening to my head. The trunk of my car slammed on my head and just went downhill from there. What a seconds reaction or decision can have an impact on your life.

    Top of my head hurts . Puressure in top. Under my eyes hurts and across forehead. Had a cat scan done last Friday and everything looked good but still having major head aches. My neck has been hurting for years. Could my head aches be coming from my neck? Thank you

    Hey there,  
    I had a brain CT scan last week and I've been waiting for my results and the wait has just made me incredibly anxious. Hopefully nothing is wrong, but I have to wait an additional week after this to get my results as my doctor couldn't schedule an earlier appointment.  
    Dealing with my High School workload and trying to focus while waiting is near impossible. Every time I have a headache or every time I get dizzy I wonder "is there something majorly wrong, or am I just going crazy?" 
    Hopefully it won't be as bad while I wait through this next week for my results, but it's honestly just nerve wracking! 
    The actual scan was a walk in the park. I was in and out in under 10 minutes!

    My wife had an accident yesterday and she is in induced comma and now they are doing another CT scan to understand the severity of her head injury. This Saturday my mum is going through her first chemo for treating breast cancer so it is a mountain of pain that stands in front of me. In this time, I am lost in pain of what is happening but I am a believer so I put my hope in the God who is our creator and He loves us dearly as His children to put a stop to this pain. I am praying for you all brothers and sisters who are going through the toughest time that we will find complete rest in our Heavenly Father. I don't why hurtful things happen to us or our loved ones but I know in the midst of all the pain, our Heavenly Father will save us all as He cannot bear the sight of losing any of us. I miss my wife and looking forward to holding her again. Please uphold my mum and my wife in your daily prayers. May God peace and grace be with us all.

    To Barb Miles,  
    The same thing happened to me with a severe headache and vomiting from going years without migraines. Mine was linked to a hormonal change. Now, 8 years later and I have chronic migraines and headaches almost daily. I was suppose to go for a CT tomorrow but I just found out it was going to cost me $427.82.I just don't have that kind of money. I go to a natural medicine doctor next week and I am hoping he can help me. Best of Luck and God bless!

    I'm 54 yrs. old and had my first CT Scan, waiting on the results now.

    Ok so I had a Ct scan for sinuses this morning, during the scan I experienced extreme pain, vertigo, intense bright blinding light. I had to wait about 20 minutes for my vision to return to normal. Since it was for my sinuses there was no iv/solution/fluid to take. Has anyone else had this issue or anything like it from a scan?

    Hi all to make a long story short. One year back in 209 my daughter and I was eating breakfast. She looked at me strange so I asked her what's wrong. She said I don't know but your eyes. There is something wrong with your eyes. I never really payed it any attention and just thought maybe I had been rubbing it or something. But I had been suffering from really really bad headaches for years. My family has a history of high blood pressure heart disease and diabetes. Being overweight I attributed my headaches to that. Then one holiday we took pictures and oh my goodness yes I saw what my daughter saw. My eyes were really bulging so much that it looked like the black eyeballs were taking over the whites of my eyes. So last time I saw a doctor was a few years back and he placed me on hbp meds. BP was 150/100. So after a few months I took myself off and started to exercise vigorously. Lost some weight but never checked my BP until I saw my eyes. So when I self checked, it was a great 120/76. So diet and exercise helped that so my bulging eyes has to come from something. But what and I was again afraid to check with my doctor. So one day we were cooking me and my family. I asked my daughter to pass me the lemon/pepper seasoning. When I shook it on my fish, the fumes caused such a bad sneezing episode that I literally peed my pants from that sneezing episode. My kids thought it was so funny but not only did that happen but my sinuses in my forehead felt like they were seizing up and I started to get a throbbing headache so bad I felt for the first time the headache thru my eyes. I immediately read the ingredients and the only two things that stood out was 1. Maltodextrin and 2. MODIFIED Corn Starch. So I wondered if this was the culprit to my Bulging Eye/Headaches. I did research on these but only found that they were safe although fairly new additive that had taken the food industry by storm. It was added to just about every food in the market. I cut it out the best I could by reading each and every label. I recently took some more pics and could not believe the transformation of my eyes. The swelling of my eyeballs had gone down tremendously! And headaches that were do bad I couldn't walk a straight line from the dizziness were no more!! I still haven't gone to the doctors but I will really soon within the next few months but to all of you suffering with head problems and eyes, please try eliminating this additive Maltodextrin#! This man made ingredient is not right and our bodies are not recognizing it and I personally believe these headaches and other internal problems are ways that our body is telling us to STOP feeding it to yourself or it could eventually be our demise! God Bless

    Hello everyone, it helps to read some of these comments and saddens me when I think I'm doing so bad and others are worse. My prayers for you all. I have had headaches for about 2 months now, on HMO Insurance, I went in to my MD let him know and he ordered a CT scan. It's been 2 weeks and no authorization. I phoned today as my headaches are still here but now i have had tingling on my face felt my face and left side of body try to go numb. I called today and assistant told me let me try to get authorization today, imagine that? I'm also having X-Rays of my neck and spine. So just nervous not sure what to think. I'm on 5 medications for my headaches but they make me wake up as if I am hung over. Lord help me. Thank you for allowing me to share...

    Hi Elsa, I know it may seem like a long shot for full recovery but I assure you trust in God because He is the source of all healing and rest that we long for. My mom, my sister and my wife has fought back from their traumatic period of their life and slowly gain strength since my last post on Dec 3 because our prayers were answered by God. Jeremiah 29:11: God says He alone has plans for us, plans to prosperity and not to destroy, plans for the future we hope for. Praying for everyone here because I know when I was helplessly lost, many of you prayed for me and my family. Our prayers wont be lost in the crowd, our God listens, strengthens and answers what's best for us. Talk soon.

    I had my second head Ct scan yesterday. I have bone cancer around the skull. My worst fear is that it will metastasize to the tissue. I have 4th stage breast cancer which has metastasized to bone in other areas of my body. I am on pins and needles waiting for the results. I pray for everyone that God see's us thru.
