Hemorrhagic Vascular Pathology

  • Martin WiesmannEmail author


Intracranial hemorrhage is a frequent indication for neuroimaging and accounts for about 15 % of all “strokes.” The term intracranial hemorrhage includes epidural, subdural, subarachnoid, intracerebral, and intraventricular bleeds. Computed tomography (CT) remains the standard method to detect intracranial hemorrhage although radiologists need also be familiar with the appearance of hematomas using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
