In acute stroke, fast and accurate differentiation between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke is crucial in choosing early initialization of brain-saving thrombolytic therapy. Comprehensive stroke imaging and image analysis, cause-guided treatment, and prognostic evaluation of stroke require a broader diagnostic approach to the disease, and are therefor not available in all emergency departments. Diagnostic radiology departments can provide specialized CT and MR imaging techniques, dedicated applications for single and multi-modal image analysis, and flexible image data handling required for a comprehensive evaluation of the disease.
With state-of-the-art CT and MR scanners, research tools for experimental diagnostic approaches, and comprehensive software for clinical and research related data handling Siemens is your ideal partner in stroke diagnostic radiology.
The simultaneous acquisition of MR imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) data provides exceptional insights into brain anatomy, functions and metabolism. Although stroke imaging has witnessed impressive progress over recent years, a number of critical questions concerning brain tissue damage, recovery, protection, and repair remain unresolved.
With the Biograph™ mMR, the world's first combined MRI and PET system, Siemens drives diagnostic stroke imaging to the next level. Using a single molecular magnetic resonance (mMR) scan, highly detailed anatomical imaging and related molecular metabolism data can be subjected to interrelated scientific analysis.
Siemens exceptional mMR imaging technology promises unprecedented insights into stroke pathology, more comprehensive brain imaging, improved stroke morphology analysis, and further optimized patient selection for sound treatment decisions and stroke therapy monitoring.
