HKSH Uses AI for Speedier Diagnosis and Assessment for Severe Acute Stroke Patients Going Beyond the Golden 3-Hour Treatment Time Window

2021-01-25
(25 January 2021, Hong Kong) Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital (HKSH) has launched an enhanced programme for severe acute stroke patients in which artificial intelligence (AI) is used to determine the amount and percentage of salvageable brain tissues based on neurovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and perfusion scanning. This will allow doctors to determine the patient’s eligibility for endovascular therapy (Intra-arterial thrombectomy / IA thrombectomy) and bring hope for more treatment options to patients who might have missed the golden 3-hour window after stroke onset.
