Szepesi et al reported the SUSPEKT score for predicting mortality associated with spontaneous supratentorial cerebral hemorrhage. The authors are from the University of Debrecen, Kenezy Hospital and Semmelweis University in Hungary.

Patient selection: spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH)


Outcome: 30-day mortality


Acronym: SUSPEKT



(1) serum glucose (SU) in mmol/L

(2) size (S) as relative total hematoma volume (volume of hematoma in cubic cm relative to intracranial volume)

(3) admission systolic blood pressure (P) in mm Hg

(4) intraventricular blood (E), as percent of total

(5) serum potassium (K)

(6) serum potassium squared

(7) age in years (T)





0.105504 * (glucose)


68.94767 * (size)

systolic blood pressure

0.003043 * (SBP)

intraventricular blood

0.441198 * ((IVB/ICH)

serum potassium

-19.2919* (potassium)

potassium squared

2.329607 * ((potassium)^2)

age in years

0.040057 * (age)


total score =

= SUM(points for all 7 parameters) + 33.54228


probability of 30-day mortality =

= 1 / (1 + EXP((-1) * (score)))
