  1. ncbi request reprint Interobserver agreement for the bedside clinical assessment of suspected stroke
    Peter J Hand
    Division of Clinical Neurosciences, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, UK
    Stroke 37:776-80. 2006
    ..We aimed to measure inter-rater reliability for the clinical assessment of stroke, with emphasis on items of history, timing of symptom onset, and diagnosis of stroke or mimic. We explored reasons for poor reliability...
  2. ncbi request reprint Distinguishing between stroke and mimic at the bedside: the brain attack study
    Peter J Hand
    Stroke Centre, Department of Neurology, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Monash University, Victoria, Australia
    Stroke 37:769-75. 2006
    ..We aimed to determine the frequency and nature of stroke mimics and to identify the key clinical features that distinguish between stroke and mimic at the bedside...

    Stephen M Davis
    Department of Neurology, Royal Melbourne Hospital, University of Melbourne, Australia
    Lancet Neurol 7:299-309. 2008
    ..We aimed to test whether alteplase given 3-6 h after stroke onset promotes reperfusion and attenuates infarct growth in patients who have a mismatch in perfusion-weighted MRI (PWI) and diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI)...
  4. ncbi request reprint Persistent infarct hyperintensity on diffusion-weighted imaging late after stroke indicates heterogeneous, delayed, infarct evolution
    Carly S Rivers
    Division of Clinical Neurosciences, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, UK
    Stroke 37:1418-23. 2006
    ..We hypothesized that late DWI hyperintensity reflected different infarct evolution compared with areas that were isointense by 1 month...
