In 2013, Jindal, Gained, Hasija, & Vani published the results of their observational study titled “Comparison of neuroimaging by CT and MRI and correlation with neurological presentation in eclampsia” in the International Journal of Reproduction, Contraception, Obstetrics, and Gynecology. The researchers used Fisher’s exact and the chi square test to statistically analyze 25 antepartum/intrapartum patients with eclampsia. All of the patients experienced neurological symptoms including headache, blurred vision, loss of vision, altered level of consciousness, and/or coma. Neuroimaging with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provided diagnostic confirmation of cerebral cortex/subcortical edema and transient high T2 signal intensity along with generalized vasospasm. The researchers concluded that MRI correlated better to clinical findings than computed topography and is a preferred imaging modality for eclamptic patients.
