NCT ID: NCT03617159 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Pediatric Cerebral Stroke

Role of Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Assessment of Pediatric Cerebral Stroke

Start date: October 2018
Study type: Observational

Stroke can be ischemic, hemorrhagic, or both. Early recognition and treatment of pediatric stroke are critical in optimizing long-term functional outcomes, reducing morbidity and mortality, and preventing recurrent stroke. Neuroimaging plays a vital role in achieving this goal. Neuroimaging is usually the first step in diagnosis, helping discriminate between ischemic/hemorrhagic strokes and also in the identification of underlying potential causes. Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays a crucial role in assessing pediatric cerebral stroke including diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).
