Using a stroke database to develop an optimal vascular imaging protocol for ischemic stroke.


OBJECTIVE There are many combinations of studies for imaging the cervicocranial vasculature for diagnosis of ischemic stroke mechanism. We demonstrate a simple approach for using data from a stroke database to determine an optimal sequence of imaging studies on the basis of cost minimization and diagnostic yield. METHODS Our study uses patient data from… (More)
