AbstractPURPOSE: Recent randomized controlled studies have shown favorable results for endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke, which signifies a new era in stroke management. Mechanical thrombectomy, in addition to intravenous thrombolysis, in treatment of acute stroke with large artery occlusion in the anterior circulation up to 6 hours after symptom onset is now level 1a evidence. However, there is no well-established universal consensus regarding the imaging workup protocol for acute stroke patients, which differ amongst these trials. We believe computed tomographic (CT) perfusion imaging, with its ability to identify irreversibly damaged ...
