Imaging of haemorrhagic stroke.

Author information

Academic Department of Radiology, University of Sheffield, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK.


Computed tomography (CT) is the reference standard for the imaging of acute non-traumatic intracranial haemorrhage. The sensitivity with which CT detects haemorrhage falls with time and lumber puncture remains mandatory for the exclusion of subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is, however, superior to CT in the subacute and chronic stages after haemorrhage. MR in addition offers pathophysiological information that can help with assessment of both the aetiology of and complications arising from both SAH and intra-parenchymal haemorrhage.
