ABSTRACT

Early signs of cerebral infarction It can be difficult to visualize cerebral infarcts within the first 24 hours on routine noncontrast CT examinations. This is rapidly changing since our images have improved and can be augmented with contrast studies. Some early signs of infarction include: • basal ganglia obscuration (loss of gray-white demarcation) • hyperdense MCA / hyperintense MCA • the "insular ribbon sign" • Cortical gray white junction obscuration In some cases, we may see hyperdense distal MCA vessels, demonstrating intraluminal thrombus. Whereas a repeat CT scan from the next day may not demonstrate these hyperdense areas.

No MeSH data available.
