Stroke is a leading cause of serious, long term disability. The goal treatment of these patients is to diagnose the problem quickly to provide appropriate treatment. CT Scan of brain is performed followed by a CT angiogram (CTA). This takes just a few minutes and provides information about the nature of the stroke. The CTA defines the location and cause of the blockage in the blood vessel. Once this is defined clot can be dealt with in different ways
