BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR) MR imaging may show subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with high sensitivity. We hypothesized that the FLAIR technique is effective and reliable in the diagnosis of cerebral intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). METHODS Two observers evaluated the 1.5-T MR fast spin-echo FLAIR images, T1- and T2-weighted MR images, and CT scans of 13 patients with IVH and the FLAIR images of 40 control subjects. RESULTS IVH appeared bright on the… CONTINUE READING
