Underutilization of IV tPA: Taking the Extra Step in the Evaluation of Acute Ischemic Stroke

Frederick S. Upton Education Center, St. Joseph, MI
Paul Wasielewski, MD

This presentation will discuss how multimodal neuroimaging (with a focus on CTP) can identify salvageable ischemic brain tissue (ie-the penumbra) in patients with acute ischemic stroke with unknown stroke onset (eg - Wake-Up Strokes) and how this can aid in the decision-making process in regards to acute reperfusion therapies (eg - IV tPA).
