  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ischemic changes identified on CT scans performed in the first few hours after stroke onset, which are thought to possibly represent early cytotoxic edema and development of irreversible injury, may have important implications for subsequent treatment. However, insecurity and conflicting data exist over the ability of clinicians to correctly recognize and interpret these changes. We performed a detailed review of selected baseline CT scans from the NINDS rt-PA Stroke… CONTINUE READING
