Hyperacute Infarction on NCCT
CT has the advantage of being available 24 hours a day and is the gold standard for hemorrhage. On CT 60% of infarcts are seen within 3-6 hrs and virtually all are seen in 24 hours.
Early CT-signs of cerebral infarction are:
- Obscuration of the lentiform nucleus or blurred basal ganglia
- Insular Ribbon sign
- Dense MCA sign
