Caption: Brain haemorrhage. False-colour computed tomo- graphy (CT) scan of an axial slice through the brain showing intracerebral haemorrhage. At upper right, the haemorrhage (yellow) is located in the post-temporal region of the cerebrum (red). The patient was a 66 year old woman. Intracerebral haemorrhage occurs either after a head injury or is caused by the spontaneous rupture of blood vessels. This type of brain haemorrhage usually occurs suddenly and spontaneously. Elderly people with hypertension (high blood pressure) are most at risk. It is one of the major causes of stroke and may lead to violent headache, speech loss, un- consciousness and muscle paralysis.
