Good Question: Procedures that were performed our presume that CAT scan in them or I would've picked up a blame brain bleed. While there is reports of a delay bring a lead within 24 to 48 hours this would be unusual. A careful history with attention to changes in cognitive status would be helpful and will determine whether a further evaluation is needed. Good luck ismy wishes.
