Abstract

The aim of the paper is to outline diagnostic possibilities of CT and MRI in the evaluation of angiogenic changes in cerebral structures. CT is a good diagnostic method in the case of hemorrhagic changes, especially in the acute stage of the disease, and in subarachnoid bleeding it is the procedure of choice. It enables also to examine patients in severe clinical status. MRI, as compared to CT, permits to detect ischaemic changes, shows even small pathological foci, and allows to make a complete diagnosis of posterior cranial cavity structures.
