IMAGING OF INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGE

Abstract

Intracranial hemorrhages represent serious neurologic emergencies, whose diagnosis and treatment must be carried out rapidly and decisively. Their diagnosis, categorization, and appropriate treatment allocation can be easily guided by current imaging techniques. Although computed tomography (CT) has traditionally been considered the imaging modality of choice in the management of these patients, recent technologic advances have placed magnetic resonance imaging in an advantageous position to become a very important diagnostic tool, in some cases likely to replace CT.
