In this article and the companion piece, two sets of experts present their views on the use of computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to select patients with acute stroke to undergo available reperfusion therapies. Specifically, in this article, two neurologists provide the clinical background and motivation behind the use of advanced imaging in stroke triage—most notably with regard to major clinical trials—to extend the time window for intravenous thrombolysis beyond the… CONTINUE READING
