Negative CT Angiography Findings in Patients with Spontaneous Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: When Is Digital Subtraction Angiography Still Needed?
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: CTA is becoming the frontline modality to reveal aneurysms in patients with SAH. However, in about 20% of SAH patients no aneurysm is found. In these cases, intra-arterial DSAExpand
