By Tommaso Scarabino, Ugo Salvolini, Randy J. Jinkins

The booklet is directed at emergency radiologists and neuroradiologists. It goals at offering exhaustive info that may aid the reader comprehend the medical difficulties within the complete variety of neurological emergencies and to choose the methodological and technical ideas that may confirm instructed and potent reaction and proper interpretation of the scientific findings.

The quite a few chapters handle the commonest neuroradiological emergencies, summarize their basic physiopathological positive aspects, describe the most semiological and differential diagnostic beneficial properties, and supply operative feedback for the choice of the correct suggestions to be utilized in a sequential order.

The e-book addresses the applying of cutting-edge strategies and their implications for medical perform (particularly the contributions of normal and sensible MRI and of spiral and multislice CT). The illustrations offer not just education but additionally reference fabric for regimen scientific work.

The lesion documented by CT (a) is hyperdense as with IPH, but with atypical site (and symptomatology); it is accompanied by abundant oedema of the white matter and exerts a marked mass effect. The subsequent examination after CE, with the demonstration of the «ring» enhancement, would therefore strongly suggest a haemorrhagic nature (as confirmed by subsequent checks). It should be noted that, despite its circumvolute appearance, also in this phase the ring is thin and regular; which arouses further doubts, because the patient has not yet been treated with steroids.

18). , isodense enhancement as compared to the surrounding normal parenchyma); this mandates the performance of a pre-enhancement image in all cases so as not to miss the infarction altogether (Fig. 19). , unusual clinical presentation, atypical imaging presentation forcing a broader differential diagnosis), because the extravasation of hyperosmolar substances into the extracellular space, especially in the early stages, can hypothetically increase the cellular and vascular insult over and above that caused by the ischaemia, thereby slowing the repair processes and possibly even contributing to the final irreversible degree of injury (11).

In this phase, neurological lateralizing signs can prove difficult to evaluate given the massive hypotonia. I. CEREBROVASCULAR EMERGENCIES a b Fig. 27 - IPH caused by the rupture of a cavernous angioma. In this 22 year-old female, a localized haemorrhagic lesion affects the rear arm of the internal capsula (a). With its various sequences (in b it is represented by a PD-weighted SE sequence), MR demonstrates that it is consequential to the rupture of a cavernous angioma. When onset is more gradual, taking a number of hours, even sluggish patients are aware of the occurrence of the neurological deficit.
