This case illustrates the dangers of using reconstructions to correct for positioning in multiplanar CT scans and using images that have already been reconstructed rather than the original source images. We present a case where a subdural haemorrhage was simulated by reconstructing already reconstructed images. © Springer-Verlag 2006.
