Author information

Service de Neuroradiologie, CHU, Caen.


The objective of brain imaging is to identify the hematoma according to its different stages and to find a potential underlying cause because of the risk of recurrence and the possibilities of treatment. In emergency, the diagnosis of hematoma is often obtained by CT scan, however today MRI has proved to be more accurate than CT to detect hemorrhage and to identify an underlying etiology. In some cases, according to the patient age, the medical history and the location of the hematoma, it may be necessary to perform a conventional angiography in order to exclude an intracranial vascular malformation. The aim of this review is to detail the different aspects of intracerebral hemorrhages according to the sequences and the temporal evolution, and to describe special findings which can help to identify an underlying etiology.
