MRI in Stroke Imaging

Stroke is the second leading cause of fatality according to the Global Burden of Disease study. “Time is brain” is the central mantra when diagnosing stroke. MRI plays a key role due to its unique ability to directly image the ischemic core of the stroke. Furthermore, in all stroke guidelines, MRI is mentioned as equivalent diagnostic imaging modality to CT. Learn here how to take advantage of the potential of MRI in stroke imaging and how to push the boundaries of stroke research using our MAGNETOM family of scanners.
