Indian Journal of Critical Care Medicine 2019, 23 (Suppl 2): S98-S103

Its ability to diagnose hemorrhage, bony fractures, brain edema and herniation in short scanning times makes it an ideal technique for neurological emergencies. The imaging equipment, normal anatomy and imaging findings in pathologies like infarct, hemorrhage, trauma and hydrocephalus are reviewed in the article.
