One-Stop Shopping: Stroke Questions Further Answered With Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Arch Neurol. 2001;58(4):555-556. doi:10.1001/archneur.58.4.555

What can we do about both preventing and treating stroke? Where is the brain injured? Where in the vascular system is the problem? Why, pathophysiologically, has this stroke occurred? and How (and when) do we implement therapies to minimize neurological disability?
