Dear MDCT.net users,

Conventional neuroimaging has widely known limitations and poor sensitivity in the study of brain pathophysiology, which have led to the development of advanced imaging modalities able to rapidly detect subtle brain trauma, including diffuse axonal injuries and intracranial hemorrhage. Cerebral MDCT angiography is particularly useful for assessing traumatic intracranial vascular lesions. Furthermore, MDCT angiography is a reliable neuroimaging tool for differentiating the various types of traumatic intracranial hemorrhage and for diagnosing craniocerebral injuries.
The impact and high value of MDCT in this context are highlighted in the new Focus on by Professor Ertl-Wagner and in the selection of recent publications on this issue. The e-book chapter and the new clinical cases presented here also illustrate many examples of the use of MDCT in neurotrauma and in neurosurgical emergencies.

We remind you that suggestions for new topics to be covered in future issues are appreciated: for this purpose please contact us at
