When people suffer a stroke, doctors need to act fast to limit any damage to the brain. Patients undergo a CT scan, which provides an image of what’s going on inside their head.
The problem is, the most common type of stroke, the ischemic stroke, is especially difficult to identify from these images. This new software uses artificial intelligence to work out exactly where this type of stroke has occurred and what effect it has had. Then, it applies a scoring system to help doctors work out if the patients are likely benefit from acute treatment. It’s super fast and is designed to save doctors, and patients, much needed time.
Will this kick off a new era for stroke diagnosis?
