Abstract

There are a number of non-traumatic neurologic conditions that are associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. These conditions often have a subacute clinical presentation, which can lead to delay in performing appropriate imaging studies. Furthermore, some of these disorders may have subtle radiologic findings, which can lead to a delay in diagnosis. Recent improvements in computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging have facilitated the diagnosis of a number of these conditions. In some of these disorders (e.g. dural sinus thrombosis), the radiologist may be the first to suggest the correct diagnosis because the clinical features are often ill-defined and non-specific. It is important for radiologists to be familiar with the various imaging findings associated with these neurologic emergencies to ensure early and correct diagnosis and treatment.
