- Avoiding "pseudo-reversibility" of CT-CBV infarct core lesions in acute stroke patients after thrombolytic therapy: the need for algorithmically "delay-corrected" CT perfusion map postprocessing softwarePamela W Schaefer
Department of Radiology, Division of Neuroradiology, Gray 273A, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, Boston, MA 02114, USA
Stroke 40:2875-8. 2009..We sought to determine: (1) the prevalence of CT-CBV "reversibility" in AIS patients treated with thrombolytic therapy, and (2) whether the presumed tissue salvage of these CT-CBV lesions depends on the CTP software...

Stroke 42:1923-8. 2011..Our purposes were to: (1) determine the optimal CT perfusion parameter to define infarct core using various postprocessing platforms; and (2) establish the degree of variability in threshold values between these different platforms...
- Role of cardiac and extracranial vascular CT in the evaluation/management of cerebral ischemia and strokeShahmir Kamalian
Department of Radiology, Winthrop University Hospital, 259 First Street, Mineola, NY, 11501, USA
Emerg Radiol 20:417-28. 2013..In conclusion, incorporation of early cardiac and extracranial vascular CT angiography (CTA) in evaluation of patients with acute ischemic stroke may potentially improve patient management and outcome, while decreasing cost. ..
