An 88-year-old male patient, suffering from a sudden onset of right-sided hemiplegia as well as aphasia and unconsciousness, was diagnosed with an acute ischemic stroke in an external hospital. He was referred to our hospital and underwent intra-arterial recanalization (IAR). A control Dual Energy (DE) CT was performed right after the recanalization.
The outcomes by Siemens Healthineers customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
