Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the most lethal stroke types. Neuroimaging techniques, particularly computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), have improved the accuracy of the diagnosis of intracerebral hemorrhage. In human, the MR features of five distinctive stages of ICH have already been reported, but they are not objectively verified in dogs. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to document the sequential MR characteristics of canine ICH according to evolving stages.
