BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Computed tomographic angiography (CTA) is suggested to be a promising tool for patient selection for thrombolytic therapy of acute stroke. It does not only provide information on intracranial vasculature, but also on the capacity of the collateral circulation and the pattern of poorly perfused brain tissue. The objective of our study was to evaluate whether the presence and size of critically hypoperfused tissue assessed with flow positron emission tomography (PET) as a… CONTINUE READING
