Sample text

This paper concentrates on the first level of clinical efficacy in stroke imaging, because there are few prospective data showing that imaging has a proved impact on treatment and outcome. CT and MRI are capable of detecting intracranial hemorrhage and other diseases that may mimic stroke, the pathology of major brain arteries, brain tissue hypoperfusion, brain swelling, ischemic brain edema, and brain tissue necrosis. Not all information may be crucial to treat the patient properly. Currently, only reperfusion therapy with intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) or intra-arterial pro urokinase within the first 6 hours of stroke onset has been shown to be effective [3-6].
