This chapter, found in the headache section of the book, provides a succinct synopsis of a key study comparing the use of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans for detecting acute intracerebral hemorrhage in stroke patients. This summary outlines the study methodology and design, major results, limitations and criticisms, related studies and additional information, and clinical implications. The researchers found that MRI is as accurate as CT for detecting acute hemorrhage in suspected stroke and is more accurate than CT for detecting chronic intracerebral hemorrhage. In addition to outlining the most salient features of the study, a clinical vignette and imaging example are included in order to provide relevant clinical context.
