Immediately calling 911 for emergency transportation to WakeMed or the closest acute stroke treatment hospital can improve the chances for a stroke victim to preserve as much normal brain function as possible.
Once at the hospital, WakeMed’s dedicated stroke team — neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, interventional cardiologists, emergency medicine physicians, nurses and therapists — work together to provide advanced, timely stroke diagnosis and treatment.
Computed tomography (CT) imaging is used to quickly identify or rule out bleeding in the brain. MRI offers precise diagnosis but takes much longer than CT and presents some logistical obstacles that can be cumbersome in the setting of acute stroke, where every minute counts. Learn what to expect from a cranial CT scan.
The faster a stroke patient receives treatment, the better the chances of recovery.
