Quantitative Imaging of Stroke

Studies suggest that the size of the cerebral infarct on diffusion weighted imaging may be an important consideration in the selection of patients for treatment with thrombolytic therapy. Furthermore, accuracy in the measurement of lesion size may be improved by the use of computational methodology. Thus, a clinical trial was initiated, in collaboration with the Stroke Imaging Repository Consortium, on the development of a novel computational algorithm for the segmentation of cerebral infarcts on diffusion weighted imaging.
