MRI-based screening improves assignment of stroke patients to endovascular treatment

from EurekAlert

A Massachusetts General Hospital-developed system for determining which patients with severe strokes are most likely to benefit from catheter-based systems for blood clot removal led to a greater percentage of screened patients receiving treatment and to outcomes similar to recent studies that found significant treatment benefits. In their paper published online in JAMA Neurology, the research team reports how the precision of their classification system, which combines diffusion MRI with key clinical characteristics, more than doubled the percentage of screened patients who were assigned to and probably benefited from treatment. more
