Abstract

Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) is a devastating condition, requiring prompt diagnosis and therapeutic intervention as well as close monitoring for the development of complications including vasospasm (VS). Although digital subtraction angiography is still considered the gold standard for the diagnosis of aSAH (and vasospasm), new and less invasive modalities are emerging including ultrasound, CT, CT angiography and CT perfusion, and MR imaging. The current evidence for the use of these newer modalities is described for the diagnosis of aSAH and the management of its sequelae including VS.
