Stroke: wake-up call for acute treatment

Dear Sir or Madam,

Did you know that it is highly likely that a stroke can be successfully treated within 4.5 hours of the onset of the symptoms? 70 European stroke centres have joined forces and discovered that two well known MRI sequences are important for determining the moment of stroke. This is how they help with acute treatment. Read more about the current WAKE-UP study in our current Interview.

Sunny greetings,

The WAKE-UP study, which included 70 participating European stroke centers, has now studied a relatively simple procedure to manage the acute care of stroke patients and avoid potential long-term effects. Best of all, it is available wherever MRI is offered.
