Poster Abstract
This review aims to illustrate the important CT features of hypoxic brain injury in adults following insults such as out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

The cases included are selected from a large District General Hospital (Lister Hospital) over the preceding 12 months. We will illustrate which areas of the brain are most vulnerable, the variability in CT appearances of the commonly seen imaging signs.

The pathognomic imaging features include focal or generalised loss of grey-white matter differentiation, hypodense basal ganglia sign and the pseudo-subarachnoid sign.
