How Analyze was Used
“ICH and PHE volumes on admission and follow-up CT scans were segmented by a semiautomated computer-assisted volumetric analysis as previously described (Version 11.0; AnalyzeDirect, Overland Park, KS, USA). In brief, the PHE volume was measured slice by slice on both baseline and follow-up CT scans. All images were evaluated independently by two experienced neurologists in a blinded manner. Hematoma expansion was defined as an increase in hematoma volume of >33% or >6 mL at follow-up CT scan. A semiautomated threshold-based approach (range of 5–33 Hounsfield Units) was applied to identify edematous regions as previously described.”
