CASE 5 - CT SCAN OF PATIENT 1 - Carousel slides 29-35.

In this series the lightest pixels show bone. Blood or hemorrhage also are shown in white.
The level for each section is shown at the lower left. Note that left and right are reversed.
The patient was a 66 year old male.
He had a sudden onset of weakness on the left side of the body, headache, and vomiting.
He presented a flaccid paralysis.
Where is the hemorrhage?

This is an infarct of what artery?
Note that the area of the infarct is dark gray. Is there a shift of the brain at the mid0line?
