The significance of Skull CT scanning in cerebrovascular diseases

Skull CT scanning in cerebrovascular diseases:

Skull CT has an accuracy rate of over 95% in diagnosing cerebrovascular diseases, and it is convenient, accurate in positioning, non-invasive, painless, and provides clear images, objective information on therapeutic response, and prognosis estimation.

Therefore, it is the preferred auxiliary examination method for cerebrovascular patients.

The significance of Skull CT scanning in cerebrovascular diseases

Pre-skull CT examination is highly valuable for the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of cerebrovascular diseases. In CT scans of cerebral hemorrhage, hyperdense shadows can be seen in the area of the bleed, allowing for the localization and extent of the lesion to be determined. In contrast, cerebral infarction is quite different from cerebral hemorrhage, characterized by low-density shadows in the affected vascular region. These differences allow for differentiation between the two conditions. However, in some cases of cerebral infarction, the brain tissue in the ischemic area does not show density changes within 1-2 days after onset, and early CT scans may not necessarily detect them.
