Right-sided extremity weakness and a right-sided hemiparesis
A 59 year old male
was delivered to our stroke unit in the Xuanwu hospital three hours
after onset of right-sided extremity weakness and a right-sided
hemiparesis. On examination in the emergency room, he was found to
have profound right extremity paresis, an expressive aphasia and
facial palsy on the right side. A complete stroke evaluation was
scheduled. In order to meet the demand of fast hemodynamic imaging
of the entire brain, CT Perfusion and whole brain perfused blood
volume calculation using syngo Neuro PBV (Perfused Blood Volume)*
were performed. This new approach allows for routine calculation of
three-dimensional, color-coded whole brain images overcoming the
limited scan coverage of Perfusion CT.
