Radiologists must be familiar with the imaging appearances of IMH as computed tomography (CT) plays a critical role in both diagnosis and patient management. The course of IMH is variable and the process may regress, remain stable, or progress in extent and therefore imaging findings associated with a negative prognosis mu...

Objective To determine the incidence and predictors of large-artery complication (aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection, and/or large-artery stenosis) in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA). Methods The cohort of all residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, in whom GCA was diagnosed between January 1, 1950, and December 31, 1999, was followed up. The incidence of aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection, and large-artery stenosis was determined. Possible predictors and correlates of large-artery comp...
