About this Research Topic
The goal of this research topic is to:
1- Explore neuro imaging markers and advance in neuro imaging that may predict hematoma expansion (HE) and/or clinical worsening
2- Explore newest imaging approaches to ICH that may differentiate primary ICH from secondary causes.
3- Describe current research that evaluate cost/benefit implications of serial imaging after ICH and clarify the patient characteristics and conditions under which serial imaging should be considered.
4- Describe the utility of NCCT signs to predict HE, alone or as part of prediction scores based on clinical variables, and guide decision-making on the triage and monitoring of patients with ICH at high risk for HE.
5- Refine the utility of NCCT signs (defined by standardized criteria) and HE scores to maximize their diagnostic and predictive capabilities and validity.
6- Evaluate the diagnostic performance of noninvasive neuroimaging to reveal the underlying cause of ICH.
7- Incorporate diagnostic criteria that include molecular fluid-based and imaging-based biomarkers such as β-amyloid in the evaluation and management of ICH
8- Incorporate multimodality scoring application of other baseline biomarkers (imaging, fluid, and/or electrophysiology based) to outcome prediction, and validate the utility of best practices for using severity scores in patient/caregiver communication and shared decision-making.
We welcome original research, reviews, perspectives, and case series.
