New acute treatment options, including i. Further, attention has increased on transient ischaemic attack TIA based on emerging evidence documenting a massive treatment effect of early secondary prevention.
Multi-slice techniques have developed CT massively as well as the new multimodal techniques including angiography and perfusion studies.
However, the quality of these options vary extremely obscuring the discussion as e. CT is quick and offers the best opportunity of monitoring the patient, however the early sensitivity for parenchymal changes is generally regarded inferior to that of MRI; however direct comparative studies are very scarce. MRI is superior in detecting ischaemia, however, movement artefacts often limit the diagnostic value in acute clinical practice.
New advanced MRI sequences such as diffuser tensor imaging are feasible using3T scanners but remain widely undescribed in this area. Subacute MRI is used with increasing frequency in patients with symptoms of TIA and a substantial variation in the frequency of DWI-defects have been reported between centres.
