Standardization of Stroke Perfusion CT for Reperfusion Therapy
Translational Stroke Research
Publication type : Review
With the advances in terms of perfusion imaging, the "time is brain" approach used for acute reperfusion therapy in ischemic stroke patients is slowly being replaced by a "penumbra is brain" or "imaging is brain" approach. But the concept of penumbra-guided reperfusion therapy has not been validated. The lack of standardization in penumbral imaging is one of the main contributing factors for this absence of validation. This article reviews the issues underlying the lack of standardization of perfusion-CT for penumbra imaging, and offers avenues to remedy this situation
