Symptoms of vertigo, ataxia, and dysmetria may suggest posterior fossa cerebellar abnormalities, best imaged by MRI. Acute onset of these symptoms could suggest posterior circulation stroke, for which imaging options would include MRI with MRA and CT angiography (CTA) of the head and neck, described in more detail later. Symptoms of cranial nerve dysfunction, including dysarthria, dysphagia, and abnormalities of extraocular muscles, suggest brainstem pathology better imaged with MRI than with CT.

Clinical Questions in Stroke Imaging What Is the Risk of Progression to Stroke in Acute TIA? What Imaging ­Studies Are Indicated? 118,120 In addition, some evidence suggests that patients with TIA may be at higher risk for subsequent adverse clinical outcomes than patients with minor ischemic strokes—possibly because of a higher rate of large vessel atherosclerosis as the cause of TIA. In TIA, large artery atherosclerosis (including carotid artery disease) may account for up to 34% of cases. The 3-month risk for stroke, myocardial infarction, and vascular death is higher for TIA patients than for minor stroke patients (15% vs.

A, Axial image. B, Coronal image. C, Enlarged region from B. D, Three-dimensional reconstruction. In this case, the false lumen has thrombosed, so a filling defect is seen where thrombus prevents contrast from entering the false lumen. If the false lumen had not thrombosed, an intimal flap would be seen separating the true and false lumens. Although the three-dimensional reconstruction (D) provides useful anatomic context here, it does not reveal the etiology of the stenosis. Instead, the thrombosed dissection itself is evident from the cross-sectional images (A–C).
