Haemorrhagic Cerebral Vascular Disease

  • J. Byrne


This paper outlines a logical strategy for managing the imaging investigation of patients presenting with spontaneous intracranial haemorrhage. Details of the patient’s acute and past medical histories may point to the cause of intracranial bleeding but in most instances it is imaging that distinguishes the victims of haemorrhagic from those with ischemic stroke. This crucial distinction triggers completely different diagnostic and therapeutic management paths.
