Advanced imaging in acute ischemic stroke.


Advances in stroke neuroimaging have evolved from excluding acute intracranial hemorrhage on computed tomography (CT) to now using perfusion studies (PWI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to possibly expand thrombolytic treatment to patients most likely to benefit from reperfusion therapy. Advanced imaging has also helped identify those at high risk for… (More)
