On the other hand, these IPH’s usually have a lobar location, and therefore at onset their symptomatology may be mild and progress slowly; for this reason they may not be seen in hospital until the subacute phase. In such circumstances, the use of IV contrast agents can aid in the determination of the diagnosis (Fig. 45). From the second to the sixth week, IPH’s show a characteristic but minor ring of enhancement along the margin of the haemorrhagic portion. However, this finding is not constant and in fact does not appear in some 50% of cases (Figs.

THE ROLE OF CT The introduction of CT immediately revealed that IPH is far more common than previously supposed on the basis of clinical data alone. Prior to the advent of this technique, only those clinical strokes in which the sudden onset and severity of symptoms were accompanied by the presence of blood in the CSF (determined by lumbar spinal tap), and in which an avascular mass was detected by selective angiography (22) were considered haemorrhagic. Today, both of these examinations are only rarely considered due to their invasiveness and relative inaccuracy.

Neuroradiology 4:179-185, 1972. 3 CT IN INTRAPARENCHYMAL HAEMORRHAGE N. Zarrelli, F. Perfetto, T. Parracino, T. Garribba, P. Maggi, N. Maggialetti, T. Scarabino INTRODUCTION The term intraparenchymal haemorrhage (IPH) refers to non-traumatic bleeding within the cerebral parenchyma. IPH accounts for 15% of all cerebrovascular disease, and statistics on this common pathological condition determine that from 10-20 new cases per annum occur for every 100,000 inhabitants in the population. This variation can be accounted for by two factors, the first being a drop in the more severe forms due to the recent progress made in treating hypertension, and the second being the improvement in diagnostic accuracy as a result of the advent of computed tomography (CT).
