BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Hemorrhagic transformation (HT) is a common evolution of large-volume ischemic lesions, particularly of cardioembolic origin. We used transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (HMPAO), and the Toronto Embolic Scale (TES) to decide (1) whether TCD, HMPAO-SPECT, and TES can improve on clinical and CT tests to predict spontaneous HT and (2) whether SPECT can help to predict the outcome… CONTINUE READING
