BACKGROUND Differential diagnosis of intracranial hemorrhage and calcification is a common problem encountered in clinical imaging diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of T2 measurement on gradient echo (GRE) T2-weighted imaging (T2WI) in differential diagnosis of intracranial hemorrhage and calcification. METHODS Thirty-eight hemorrhagic foci in 18 patients and 11 calcification foci in seven patients were included in this study. The diagnosis of hemorrhage… CONTINUE READING
