Diagnostic Imaging of CNS Infection and Inflammation

Part of the Clinical Topics in Infectious Disease book series (CLIN.TOP.INFECT)


When intracranial or spinal infection is suspected clinically, the primary imaging studies that are most often requested to help in diagnosis and treatment are computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR). While the choice of one modality over the other as the initial study is sometimes determined by the type of infection suspected, it often depends on the patient’s clinical condition (critically or not, requiring life-support systems or not), availability (whether MR imaging (MRI) available, or whether MRI or CT is available sooner), and medical economics (a routine CT examination is currently about one half to one third as expensive as an unenhanced MRI study).
