CT image showing bleeding within the brain from a stroke

Bleeding within the brain (a hemorrhagic stroke, arrows). The blood is white, and there is slightly darker than normal areas surrounding this, due to local brain swelling (edema).
G = normal brain gray matter
W = normal brain white matter (darker on CT scans than gray matter)
Arrows = blood
