Differential diagnosis of nontraumatic intracranial hemorrhage

Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 1998 May;8(2):263-93.


Intracranial hemorrhage is a common initial symptom of intracranial vascular malformations. Although CT remains important in the acute setting, MR imaging has proved invaluable for diagnosis and characterization of intracranial hemorrhage. MR imaging of hemorrhage and the differential diagnosis of nontraumatic intracranial hemorrhage is presented in this article.
