Nonenhanced computerized tomography (CT) exams were used to detect acute stroke by notification of hypodense area. Infarction perception improvement by data denoising and local contrast enhancement in multi-scale domain was proposed. The wavelet-based image processing method enhanced the subtlest signs of hypodensity, which were often invisible in standard(More)
Extracranial artery dissection is a rare finding. It may be the result of acute aortic dissection. We present the case of a 50-year-old patient admitted to Department of Neurology CSK MSWiA with signs of transient ischaemic attack. Both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging revealed no ischaemic changes within the central nervous system.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke is the third cause of death worldwide. In recent decade there has been a marked progress in treatment and prevention of stroke, which was possible largely due to modern neuroimaging techniques. Early radiological confirmation of the diagnosis allows for introduction of fibrinolytic therapy and evaluation of ischaemic penumbra.(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral venous thrombosis is a relatively uncommon neurologic disorder that is potentially reversible with prompt diagnosis and appropriate medical care. The pathogenesis is multifactorial and the disease may occur at any age. CVT is often associated with nonspecific symptoms. Radiologists play a crucial role in patient care by providing early(More)
The Planar CT exams were used to detect acute ischemic stroke by hypodense symptoms notification. Infarction perception improvement by adaptive window settings, data denoising and local contrast enhancement in image and multi-scale domain is proposed. The post-processing methods enhance the subtlest, often invisible signs of hypodensity. Thus improved(More)
