For these reasons, interpretations of brain CT of patients with acute stroke sings in our hospital are performed by neuroradiologists
with significant expertise in stroke.
According to the literature reviews, most articles compared neuroradiologists
and neurologists, or neuroradiology/stroke fellows for evaluation of the ASPECTS (9, 10).
Based on a neuroradiologist
routine primary diagnostic interpretation, the sample included patients without lesions (7) and those with hemorrhagic lesions (11), acute ischemic lesions (67), and chronic ischemic lesions (36).
A recent systematic review and meta-analysis showed that CTA scan sensitivity in detecting BCVI of all grades remains less than 80% when scans were read by a neuroradiologist
using at least a 16-slice scanner and has a false negative rate of 79% for injuries classified as grade 2 or higher [10-12].
The brain images are sent wirelessly to a neuroradiologist
at a hospital for evaluation.
The procedure also pays off in monetary terms, points out Dr Jens Fiehler, a neuroradiologist
at Hamburg-Eppendorf University Medical Centre in Germany.
Neuropathology for the neuroradiologist
: Antoni A and Antoni B tissue atterns.
The MRI findings were independently interpreted by a pediatric neuroradiologist
and intensivist, who were blinded to clinical data and patient outcomes, and EFM patterns were interpreted by obstetric research nurses who were blinded to clinical outcomes, Dr.
who reads the brain and cervical spine exams may be reading those together, even as separate exams, but because it's the same radiologist and the same day of service, it will be counted as a single encounter.
Professor Anton Valavanis gave a sparkling review of the microcirculation and collateral vascular supply of the brain that provided the framework for the subsequent talks on chronic ischaemia, cerebral haemodynamics nd the role of the many advanced imaging techniques now available to the neuroradiologist
. Susceptibility weighted imaging, MR perfusion and arterial spin labelling featured prominently.
Consultant interventional neuroradiologist
Dr Rajeev Padmanabhan said: "It is rare that a patient so young has a stroke.
After an MRI of the optic area, a neuroradiologist
reported to the ophthalmologist that the findings were consistent with metastatic cancer.
