A retrospective study was performed in order to evaluate the frequency of abnormalities found by computed tomography (CT) scan of the head in 78 patients with migraine or tension-type headache. In the present study CT scan was normal in 61.5% of the patients with migraine or tension-type headache. A number of abnormalities were encountered in more than one third of the patients studied, including inflammatory sinus disease (19.2%), cysticercosis (3.9%), unruptured cerebral aneurysm (2.6… Expand
Computed Tomography for Primary Headache
TLDR
The frequency of abnormal computed tomography scans of the brain in the evaluation of patients with headache who present without neurological signs was determined and no clinically significant abnormality was found. Expand
Diagnostic value of neuroimaging in patients with primary headaches
TLDR
To determine the differential diagnostic contribution of the imaging techniques, 275 consecutive patients with migraine with or without aura, tension type headache and other types of headaches were included in this study. Expand
Clinical warning criteria in evaluation by computed tomography the secondary neurological headaches in adults
TLDR
The frequency of intracranial lesions detected by cranial computed tomography amongst adult patients who had clinical warning criteria (CWC) for secondary neurological headaches and the importance of CWC in predicting a possible lesion on CT‐scan was determined. Expand
Clinical predictors of significant intracranial computed tomography scan findings in adults experiencing headache disorder
TLDR
Abnormal results from neurological examination are the best clinical parameters to predict structural intracranial pathology on CT-scan in adult patients experiencing headache disorder. Expand
Assessment of Cranial Imaging Findings in Patients with Migraines
TLDR
This study aimed to classify lesion types, rates, and pathological lesions detected in patients with migraine, and emphasized the association with ischemic and/or demyelinating white matter lesions. Expand
Neuroimaging findings in headache with normal neurologic examination: Systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
In patients with headache and normal neurologic examination, important vascular and neoplastic unexpected findings are rare and better detected with MRI, which supports current American College of Radiology and European Headache Federation recommendations to avoid systematic imaging in such patients and prefer MRI when imaging is needed. Expand
Neuroimaging of headaches in patients with normal neurological examination: protocol for a systematic review
TLDR
This review aims to determine the prevalence of incidental findings and normal anatomic variants (NAV) on neuroimaging studies performed in patients presenting with headache and normal neurological examination and published before the 30 September 2017. Expand
Clinical characteristics of migraine in patients with calcified neurocysticercosis.
TLDR
Some of the clinical characteristics of migraine attacks are sufficiently different in patients with and without NCC to suggest some influence of NCC in the pathophysiology of migraine to account for alterations in the clinical manifestations of the disease. Expand
Calcified neurocysticercosis among patients with primary headache.
TLDR
Whether neurocysticercosis is more common among patients with primary headaches than in other neurological disorders is determined and differences in the prevalence between patients and controls are evaluated. Expand
Calcified neurocysticercosis among patients with primary headache
TLDR
It is possible that periodic remodeling of cysticercotic calcifications, with liberation of antigens to the brain parenchyma, contributes to the occurrence of headache in patients with primary headache. Expand

The utility of neuroimaging in the evaluation of headache in patients with normal neurologic examinations
TLDR
Little objective data exist to enable physicians to make an informed judgment about the yield and usefulness of neuroimaging in the evaluation of headache, and based on frequency of use, economic impact, and controversy regarding validity, the Quality Standards Subcommittee undertook the task of reviewing all the pertinent literature to determine if any clear practice parameters could be offered.

Headaches in patients with brain tumors
TLDR
The typical headache was bifrontal but worse ipsi-laterally, and was the worst symptom in only 45% of patients, and unlike true tension-type headaches, brain tumor headaches were worse with bending over in 32%, and nausea or vomiting was present in 40% of Patients. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that, at least radiographically, the ethmoidal infundibulum is not always the origin of paranasal sinus disease, and a simple anterior ethmoidectomy cannot be considered the panacea for chronic and/or recurring sinusitis. Expand
[Unilateral opacification of the paranasal sinuses in CT or MRI: an indication of an uncommon histological finding].
TLDR
Unilateral opacification of paranasal sinuses in the CT or MRI is--especially at a higher age--an indice for a neoplasm or mycotic sinusitis and therefore an early histological diagnosis or operative treatment is always suggested. Expand
Low-dose CT and inflammatory disease of the paranasal sinuses
TLDR
The authors recommend the use of low mAs setting in the evaluation of inflammatory disease of the sinuses, complemented, if necessary, in cases of extensive abnormalities, by one or two sections obtained with standard mAs settings, focused on questionably abnormal bone septa. Expand

TLDR
Cerebrovascular disease was the most prevalent cause of epileptic seizures, considering all groups of patients, although, cysticercosis was main cause found in the patients with less than 45 years of age. Expand
Frequency of cerebral arteritis in subarachnoid cysticercosis: an angiographic study.
TLDR
The frequency of cerebral arteritis in subarachnoid cysticercosis is higher than previously reported, and middle-size vessel involvement is a common finding, even in those patients without clinical evidence of cerebral ischemia. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that the idiopathic facial paralysis may lead to important sequelae in more than 20% of the patients. Expand
Risk of cerebral angiography in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral aneurysm, and arteriovenous malformation: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The risk of permanent neurological complication associated with cerebral angiography in patients with SAH, cerebral aneurysm, and AVM is quite low, and this risk is lower than previously recognized. Expand
Chronic sinusitis: the role of imaging.
TLDR
MRI has supplanted the CT scanner in the appreciation of intracranial and orbital complications of sinusitis because it provides better visualisation and differentiation of soft tissues than the CT scan. Expand
