BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Identification of ICH, particularly after ischemic stroke therapy, is important for guiding subsequent antithrombotic management and is often confounded by contrast staining or extravasations within intracerebral or extra-axial compartments. This study evaluates the accuracy of DECT in distinguishing ICH from iodinated contrast in patients who received contrast via IA or IV delivery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty patients who had received IA or IV contrast were evaluated… CONTINUE READING
