摘要

We describe findings suggestive of brain death on susceptibility-weighted imaging. We retrospectively reviewed brain magnetic resonance (MR) images of 15 patients who had cardiac arrest and found four cases with evidence of brain death. We then reviewed susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) findings on these cases. SWI images in the four cases with brain death showed deoxygenated blood in intracranial arteries. This preliminary result suggests that SWI may be used to diagnose brain death.
