Ischemic stroke, which accounts for 87% of all strokes, is caused by a blood clot blocking an intracranial artery. Rapid perfusion of the tissue still salvable through dissolution or removal of the thrombus is one of the primary goals of acute ischemic stroke treatment. This can be achieved through chemical or mechanical means. The aim of Emilie Santos’s research is to use imaging techniques to help us better predict which kind of therapy will be most successful for a given patient.
