Cerebral Atrophy

  • Etiology: hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, ECMO
  • Imaging: diffuse prominence of the sulci and ventricular system

Cases of Cerebral Atrophy

CT of cerebral atrophy after being on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
Axial CT without contrast of the brain shows diffuse prominence of the sulci and ventricular system.
CT of intraventricular hemorrhage, intracerebral hemorrhage, and cerebral atrophy in a patient on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
Axial CT without contrast of the brain shows mixed-density fluid in the left lateral ventricle posteriorly and mixed-density fluid in the left parietal-occipital lobe. There is also diffuse prominence of the sulci and ventricular system.
