Research findings of a new computer program that predicts the chances of brain cells dying as the result of a stroke appear in the April issue of Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.
The computer software, which uses artificial intelligence techniques, rapidly combines several new types of images obtained by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into a map of the brain that allows physicians to assess the risk of brain damage with high specificity and sensitivity.
