This information is especially important because HI has been viewed as an ominous sign of potential neurologic disaster and has prompted a reluctance to use anticoagulants. More recently, fear of hemorrhagic transformation has raised concern about the risks of using thrombolytic agents in the treatment of acute stroke. In the CT-angiographic… CONTINUE READING
