Episode 11: MRI for acute stroke- screening in the field

In this episode we sat down with Dr. Steven Warach the Director of the Clinical Research Institute and Vascular Neurologist from Dell Seton Medical Center to talk about acute MRI for stroke and how we might be able to reduce the time to treatment.

3 questions comprise the safety screen:

  1. Do you have any implanted electronics like a pacemaker or defibrillator?
  2. Do you have any vascular clips in your brain?
  3. Do you have any metal fragments in your body?
