Tweet Chat: Imaging Biomarkers in Acute Ischemic Stroke
Please join Stroke Social Media Editor Dr. Waleed Brinjikji and Dr. Max Wintermark for a stimulating discussion on ideal imaging strategies for acute ischemic stroke patients and the role of imaging in treatment selection for mechanical thrombectomy in tPA. Both state-of-the-art and standard imaging selection techniques will be discussed.
Neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurointerventionalists, and others involved in acute stroke care are invited to participate in a discussion that will include non-contrast CT protocols, CTA for identification of large vessel occlusion, the role of CTA in collateral assessment, and perfusion imaging.
Date: Wednesday, August 23
Time: 2–3 p.m. EST
Be sure to follow us @StrokeAHA_ASA and use the hashtag #StrokeImaging in your tweets to join the discussion.
We look forward to chatting with you!
