Edited by one of the world's leading and widely published stroke experts, Acute Stroke Treatment, Second Edition presents a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the latest information available. Each chapter includes well organized tables and pictures, in color and black and white, that illustrate novel uses of neuroimaging and nuclear medicine in diagnosing and determining the extent of damage in stroke patients. The chapter authors discuss the range of new possibilities in the management and treatment of this medical condition, including ultra-early diagnosis, intensive care, surgical and other interventional therapies, thrombolysis, anti-ischemic drugs, and the prevention of immediate recurrence. A masterful analysis of the current thinking in this field, the book explores methodologies, technologies, and their applications.
