Prospective single-site study sets stroke community buzzing about performance of MR imaging versus unenhanced CT for triage of stroke type and severity

MRI of TIA faces barrier of therapeutic limitations

November 27, 2007

A growing body of research indicates that MR diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) can help predict risk of recurrent stroke in patients presenting with transient ischemic attack.

Penumbral Imaging Propels Trials Toward Wider Therapeutic Window

November 01, 2007

It's been a long, frustrating 12 years since an acute stroke drug last won over the FDA, a time in which the percentage of eligible patients actually helped by the drug has remained stuck in the single digits.

Researchers Strengthen Case for MRI as Acute Stroke Modality of the Future

November 01, 2007

In the weeks leading up to the 2007 International Stroke Conference, stroke imaging experts could have been preparing to debate such cutting-edge topics as whether MRI or CT is best suited for the ischemic mismatch imaging techniques that one day will routinely be used to select patients for thrombolytic therapy.

MRI's predictive value may depend on patient selection

November 01, 2007

It's one thing for acute stroke imaging to predict final infarct volume or a patient's risk of 90-day mortality. It's quite another for imaging to predict whether a patient will recover upper extremity dexterity or language skills, or to what extent the patient will be able to function independently.

MRI scores with basketball players at risk for injury

December 02, 2004

Research from Duke University, where stress fractures of the fifth metatarsal have been the proverbial Achilles heel of more than one Blue Devil basketball star, may help team practitioners identify players at risk for this injury even before symptoms develop.
