    Cardiovascular Thrombus: From Pathology and Clinical Presentations to Imaging, Pharmacotherapy and Interventions provides a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of the research and clinical practices as related to the contemporary aspects of the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular thrombosis. The formation, identification and. Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) is a commonly performed MRI sequence for evaluation of acute ischemic stroke, and is sensitive in the detection of small and early infarcts. Conventional MRI sequences (T1WI, T2WI) may not demonstrate an infarct for 6 hours, and small infarcts may be hard to appreciate on CT for days, especially without the benefit of prior imaging.

    CT imaging, including noncontrast CT (NCCT), CT angiography (CTA), and CT perfusion (CTP), are the most often the initial imaging modalities in stroke evaluation. At our institution, NCCT followed by CTA is the initial study in stroke evaluation. CTP is performed in select cases to help stratify patients for treatment. Knowledge of the pathophysiologic mechanisms of neuronal injury in stroke is essential to target treatment. Neuroprotective and thrombolytic agents have been shown to improve clinical outcome. Physiologic imaging with diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and perfusion CT and MRI provide a pathophysiologic substrate of evolving ischemic by:

    Neuroimaging Methods. The scope of this book is not to provide a comprehensive overview of methods and applications but to provide a 'snapshot' of current approaches using well established and newly emerging techniques. Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Acute Stroke. This note covers the following topics: Pathogenesis of Imaging Findings. In another study by Aoki et al of consecutive patients with stroke that excluded lacunar and vertebrobasilar system infarcts, when restricted diffusion was present and FLAIR imaging findings were negative, the positive predictive value was 77% that the stroke was less than 3 hours old, 96% that it was less than hours old, and % that Cited by:

This updated second edition of Acute Ischemic Stroke: Imaging and Intervention provides a comprehensive account of the state of the art in the diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The basic format of the first edition has been retained, with sections on Imaging in Stroke book.

Unfortunately, The Stroke Book also has a number of major flaws. Neuroimaging plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of patients with acute stroke, and Chapter 7, covering CT in acute stroke, is excellent. However, neuroimaging is otherwise poorly presented.

Chapter 8, covering MR imaging in acute stroke, is particularly weak. Stroke represents a clinical syndrome of rapid onset of focal or sometimes global cerebral deficit with a vascular cause, lasting more than 24 hours or leading to death.

Eighty per cent of all strokes are ischaemic, 15% are due to intracerebral haemorrhage, and 5% to subarachnoid haemorrhage. Correct diagnosis is important because treatment options for ischemic stroke 1/5(1). Imaging in the acute setting of suspected stroke is an important topic to all emergency physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroradiologist.

When it comes to imaging, the American College of Radiology (ACR) continually updates its guidelines Cited by: The book contains figures with separate illustrations (50 in color) and 20 tables, most of excellent quality.

has largely enduring value to both clinical neuroradiologists and researchers interested in advancing acute stroke therapy through imaging triage.".

Magnetic resonance imaging provides non-invasive information about the brain's blood flow, water movement and biochemical abnormalities following stroke, and advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are transforming the investigation and treatment of cerebrovascular disease.

The imaging of stroke has undergone significant changes owing to the rapid progress in imaging technology. This volume, comprising three parts, is designed to provide a comprehensive summary of the current role of MR imaging in patients with ischemic stroke.

Rationale and Imaging Evidence for Patients Presenting with Acute Stroke Symptoms. The initial step in the evaluation of patients with symptoms of acute stroke is to differentiate between hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke (Figure 1).For patients with acute ischemic stroke who are candidates for IV tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a non-contrast CT (NCCT) of the head.

Imaging in Neurology could easily become a staple in the Neurology book market as an imaging bible of sorts." "This is yet another wonderful offering from Dr. Osborn's group. It is well suited for its intended audience and provides a good overview of pertinent imaging findings clinicians should be familiar : Acute Ischemic Stroke: Imaging and Intervention is a comprehensive presentation of the state-of-the-art in the diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke.
