Target Audience:

The ASNR 54th Annual Meeting is the premier Neuroradiology meeting in the world. The target audience includes:

  • Neuroradiologists in practice and research
  • General radiologists who read Neuroradiology studies
  • Young professionals and trainees
  • Brain, Spine, and Head and Neck imaging Scientists
  • Clinicians from related disciplines

About This Module:

This module is composed of four parts:
  • Large Vessel Occusion (LVO) Therapy: What is the Current Evidence Mahesh V. Jayaraman, MD
  • Drip-and-Ship for Acute Ischemic Stroke: What is the Evidence? M. Shazam Hussein, MD
  • Counterpoint: Mothership for Acute Ischemic Stroke: What is the Evidence? Blaise W. Baxter, MD
  • Does the Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) Change the Rules? Incorporating MSU in Stroke Therapy Peter A. Rasmussen, MD

Objectives:

Upon completion of this module, participants should be able to:

Part I:Large Vessel Occusion (LVO) Therapy: What is the Current Evidence Mahesh V. Jayaraman, MD

    Summarize the recent literature regarding endovascular therapy for acute ischemic stroke patients with Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO) in the anterior circulation; identify the segments of the population where there is inadequate current literature regarding endovascular therapy

Part II:Drip-and-Ship for Acute Ischemic Stroke: What is the Evidence? M. Shazam Hussein, MD

    Explain the critical importance of time and organization of care in stroke; describe the benefit of early tPA administration to all patient subgroups in treatment of acute ischemic stroke

Part III:Counterpoint: Mothership for Acute Ischemic Stroke: What is the Evidence? Blaise W. Baxter, MD

    Evaluate the pros and cons of stroke treatment through comprehensive stroke center (“mothership” center model) versus treatment at nearest emergency department (“drip and ship” approach)

Part IV:Does the Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) Change the Rules? Incorporating MSU in Stroke Therapy Peter A. Rasmussen, MD

    List the potential benefits of integrating mobile stroke units in stroke therapy
