1. Pre-hospital testing/evaluations and triaging patients to the appropriate facility. Imaging (Non-contrast CT/ CT Angiography) with a Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) where available could save additional time over the next 2 steps.
2. Triaging patients within hospital upon arrival, quick imaging (Non-contrast CT / CT Angiography /CT Perfusion) and diagnosis along with determining treatment plan
3. Administer Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA) and prep for further treatment
4. Endovascular treatment in the Angio suite
5. Comprehensive pathways to help improve your patients outcomes
Whitepaper: CT Neuro Perfusion in Ischemic Stroke Management
Optimal stroke care relies on quick imaging, diagnosis and treatment with interactions across the healthcare continuum.
Imaging is essential to the management of stroke, especially advanced neuroimaging techniques like CT perfusion (CTP), which can evaluate the extent of the stroke and help guide informed decisions regarding treatment.
This white paper discusses how whole brain dynamic imaging with automated perfusion analysis can enable reliable and quick image interpretation. Accurate and timely responses to ischemic stroke can potentially help reduce door-to-needle time, save brain tissue, and improve stroke outcomes.
