Whole Brain Perfusion Imaging Improves Stroke Diagnoses  

TUSTIN, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 – Dr. Ken Snyder, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Radiology and Neurology at State University of New York at Buffalo, will discuss how his institution used the AquilionTM ONE from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. to diagnose stroke during a Lunch & Learn Symposium titled “Acute Stroke Triage Using Whole Brain CT Perfusion.” The presentation will take place Thursday, October 4, at noon ET, at the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology’s (ASHNR) annual meeting, October 3 – 7, in Miami Beach, Fla.

“Aquilion ONE acquires whole brain perfusion images, showing dynamic blood flow for better visualization and more accurate diagnoses,” said Satrajit Mistra, senior director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba. “The system’s fast acquisition and whole-brain coverage enable clinicians to develop treatment plans quickly, which is critical in stroke situations.”
