Researchers are developing a modified MRI protocol to help treat brain hemorrhages

Researchers with the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston are investigating how different MRI sequences can assist physicians in treating patients with brain hemorrhages. 

With this MRI sequence, the team hopes to see within the hematoma what percentage of the blood is already clotted and what percentage is in the liquid form. It can be determined if patients with mostly clotted blood are less likely to see their blood expand.
