Neuroimaging by CT or MR imaging is necessary for the identification of hemorrhagic stroke and provides information about its cause. The appearance of intracranial hematoma (ICH) on CT and MR imaging evolves over time and must be understood to facilitate accurate diagnosis. The cause of ICH varies by location. New evidence suggests that MR imaging alone may be adequate to identify hemorrhagic stroke in the acute setting, and that MR imaging is superior to CT for identification of chronic microbleeds and hemorrhagic conversion of infarction.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract]ABSTRACT: Due to its widespread availability, computer tomography (CT) scanning continues to be the primary initial imaging modality for assessment of patients with suspected acute stroke. It serves as a screening tool for other structural lesions which can mimic stroke and evaluates for possible hemorrhage prior to potential thrombolytic therapy. Findings seen on the initial CT may also serve as prognostic indicators of patient outcome helping with management decisions. As well, follow-up imaging in the subacute stages of infarct is also valuable for assessment of potential complications such as infarct extension, hemorrhagic transformation (and/or intracranial hemorrhage), and cerebral edema.
