Association of Automatically Quantified Total Blood Volume after Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage with Delayed Cerebral Ischemia
The authors retrospectively studied clinical and radiologic data of 333 consecutive patients with aneurysmal SAH between January 2009 and December 2011. Adjusted odds ratios werecalculated for the association between automatically quantified total blood volume on NCCT and delayed cerebral ischemia (clinical, radiologic, and both). The adjusted OR of total blood volume for delayed cerebral ischemia was 1.02 per milliliter of blood. They conclude that a higher total blood volume measured with the automated quantification method is significantly associated with delayed cerebral ischemia.
