Pituitary apoplexy stems from an acute expansion of a pituitary adenoma or, less commonly, in a nonadenomatous gland, from infarction or hemorrhage. Diagnosis is typically made using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pituitary gland. In this video, Dr. Michael Vaphiades guides you through key MRI signs that can aid in the diagnosis of this disease. He also shows how MRI can be used to distinguish between hemorrhagic and ischemic apoplexy.
