Abstract

The characteristic findings on CT associated with transtentorial herniation have been studied [2], and the relationship between the lateral displacement of the brain and level of consciousness has also been reported [1]. However, quantitative measurement of brain distortion or the relationship between cerebral shift and brainstem displacement in patients with supratentorial space-occupying lesions did not receive much attention.
