does brain CT scan show current and past bleeds, strokes, current anureism

Does a brain CT scan show current and past bleeding in the brain, current aneurism, past strokes. I am having bad headaches after starting Warfarin two weeks ago.

I just had one done and my neurologist told me the CT scan would pick up current bleeding and tumors. Not sure if anything would show past bleeding or not. I think you would need an MRI to show the others.
