Acute brain injury (ABI) usually causes long-term disability and a high mortality. During ABI, cerebral autoregulation is affected, and the harmony of cerebral circulation is interrupted. As venous system contains nearly 70–80% of the circulatory volume inside the inflexible cranial cavity and is more susceptible to the elevation of intracranial pressure than the arterial system, almost all kinds of ABI can present with changes in cerebral venous system. With the development of venous imaging and increased use of high resolution imaging protocols, understanding of venous structure, morphology and metabolism has become feasible and important, which may provide critical information for clinical diagnosing and prognosis prediction in ABI. In this chapter, we summarized the features found on venous imaging related to ABI, and discussed their clinical significance.
