Cerebral venous thrombosis-A pictorial review.

Author information

Department of Radiology, University Hospital Aintree, Lower Lane, Liverpool L9 7AL, United Kingdom.


Cerebral venous thrombosis is a relatively uncommon but serious neurological condition. It can have disastrous consequences if not diagnosed and treated promptly. It can be missed on initial presentation clinically as well as radiologically unless there is high level of suspicion. This pictorial review is intended to bring an increased awareness among radiology and medical trainees who are involved in the management of these patients. In this review we also discuss the various radiological investigations that can be performed for making the diagnosis and emphasise ways to avoid pitfalls.
