CT Perfusion imaging is usually applied to assess perfusion abnormalities in acute stroke. This prospective study applied the technique to monitor cerebral haemodynamics before and after cranioplasty. Cranioplasty is the surgical correction of a skull defect using autologous or heterologous material to obtain cosmetic repair, restoration of brain protection and neurological improvement (1). As far as we know the effect of cranioplasty on cerebral haemodynamics flow has been analysed by CT… CONTINUE READING
