Dural venous sinus thrombosis


Typical MRI imaging features of dural venous sinus thrombosis. The most sensitive MRI sequences without contrast injection for the detection of clot are susceptibility sequences (SWI or GRE). Whereas a T1-weighted sequence with contrast injection is the most sensitive and specific for the imaging diagnosis of dural venous sinus thrombosis.

Patients with untreated dural venous sinus thrombosis are at risk of developing infarction with the potential of hemorrhagic transformation.
