Correlation between the Cerebral Venous Sinuses Density in patients using Non-enhanced Computed Tomography scan with the Hemoglobin level and Packed Cell Volume Percentage

Author: RIYADH AL, NADA ALHARIS, MOHAMMED A. MAHDI, HUSSAM HUSSEIN
Abstract: Traditionally computed tomography is the initial investigation for many intracranial pathology including suspicion of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. non pathological causes of increase in the cerebral venous sinuses density can mimic venous sinuses thrombosis that should taken into account before preceding for further imaging modalities .The study aimsto find the correlation between the cerebral venous sinuses density with the hemoglobin level and the packed cell percentage using non-enhanced computed tomography to ovoid overestimating a normally hyper dense sinuses as thromboses one ,furthermore not underestimating the is dense thromboses sinuses in patient with anemia as normal density sinus.Dural sinus density on NECT is closely related to Hb and PCV% levels. Therefore, Hb or PCV levels can be used to determine whether the Dural sinus density is within the normal range or abnormal {a regression equation can be used to estimate the HU from the Hb such as (HU=2.28Hb +25.8) or from the PCV% such as (HU=0.52 PCV+33.6)}.Quantitative assessment of the Dural sinuses is easy and less timeconsuming work in clinical practice without additional radiation exposure, therefore, when grossly hypo dense or hyper dense Dural sinuses are observed on NECT, so Dural sinus attenuation have to be measured and correlate with the Hb or PCV levels.
