No blood or exudate are seen in the meningeal spaces. The blood vessels at the base of the brain are intact and patent. The cerebral hemispheres are symmetrical and show a preserved gyral pattern. The brainstem and cerebellum are externally unremarkable. On multiple coronal sections the ventricular system is within normal limits. No focal lesions are identified in the cerebrum, cerebellum or brainstem.
