Quantification of blood after SAH on initial NCCT is an important radiologic measure to predict patient outcome and guide treatment decisions. In current scales, hemorrhage volume and density are not accounted for. The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a fully automatic method for SAH volume and density quantification. The automatic volume and density quantification is very accurate compared with manual assessment. As such, it has the potential to provide important determinants in clinical practice and research.
