Doctors find new way to predict recurrent stroke
Date:2/24/2012

tify the onset of her symptoms and sought medical help. Doctors at the Foothills Medical Centre's Calgary Stroke Program were able to use a CT scan to determine that her risk of another stroke was very low and she was released from hospital. "I am glad I was able to be released and come back at a later date for an MRI scan," she says. Previously physicians would have admitted her to hospital for further investigations. This work allows low-risk patients to be managed safely at home rather than being admitted to hospital, which has the added benefit of reducing strain on the healthcare system.

"Even in centres that have MRI machines, there are often delays in getting patients into a scan. This research has an immediate impact and lets us use readily accesible tools to help patients," says Coutts.

The research is published in the February on-line edition of the journal Stroke.
