Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Critically ill neurologic patients are common in the hospital practice of neurology and are often in extreme states requiring accurate and specific information. Imaging, especially using advanced imaging techniques, can provide an important means of garnering this information. This article focuses on the clinical utilization of selective imaging methods that are commonly used in critically ill neurologic patients to render diagnoses, to monitor effects of treatment, or have contributed to a better understanding of pathophysiology in the intensive care unit.
