Anterior communicating artery aneurysm diagnosis

Weisberg reviewed the CT findings in 40 patients with ruptured aneurysms of the anterior cerebral artery or anterior communicating artery. Within 3 days of the ictus, the common patterns included blood in the pericallosal cistern and interhemispheric fissure, blood in the caval-septal region, unilateral or bilateral frontal hematoma, and diffuse symmetric intraventricular and basal cisternal blood 1).

For CT classification see the Modified Fisher scale.
