Haemorrhagic infarct vs intracerebral haemorrhage
Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) may overlap with a haemorrhagic infarct and hence needs to be differentiated as the line of treatment will vary.
- areas of infarct remote from the site of haemorrhagic infarct
- on perfusion imaging, the centre of the haematoma corresponds to highest risk of infarction
- evidence of occlusive disease on TOF imaging
- on perfusion imaging, the region of the deficit does not extend beyond the region of infarct
