Neuroradiological Findings of BBB Dysfunction after SAH

Abstract

In the early years of diagnostic cerebral investigation by angiography and pneumo-encephalography brain lesions were as phantoms, whose presence and consequences could only be inferred from the displacements of vessels or ventricles they provoked, and only exceptionally did they manifest themselves. But since the introduction of radio-isotope scanning brain lesions have revealed their presence on account of barrier breakdown causing extravasation of the radioactive tracer.
