Originally presented at the 2019 SIR Annual Scientific Meeting.
The overall goal of this course is to improve patient care and outcomes by increasing practitioner knowledge with regards to imaging workup, indications and techniques for intra-arterial treatment of patients with acute ischemic stroke. This course will provide cutting edge, comprehensive education, with emphasis ranging from imaging and patient selection to endovascular treatment and patient management.
This course is intended for interventional radiologists with cerebral angiography experience and either currently performing, or interested in providing, acute stroke therapy who seek to incorporate stroke care into their practice as a member of an endovascular team and/or upgrade their knowledge and skill base.
