Throughout pregnancy and the puerperium, a variety of hormonal and physiologic changes occur that are associated with pregnancy-specific neurologic conditions, which may also influence known preexisting medical conditions or bring previously unknown neurologic conditions to clinical attention. This article reviews the imaging of a spectrum of neurologic conditions that may be encountered in the pregnant or puerperal patient, the key physiologic changes that are most germane to the imaging of neurologic conditions, and the important safety considerations that are made when choosing and performing a diagnostic imaging test for the pregnant and puerperal patient.
