OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this article are to illustrate the variable CT and MRI features of carbon monoxide-induced brain injury and to discuss the underlying pathogenesis.

CT and MRI are valuable in the delineation of disease extent and helpful for understanding the pathophysiologic mechanisms.
