A way forward to reliably triage acute stroke for rapid management

Time to treatment after stroke is criticallly important to
reduce the chance of brain damage. A 'proof-of-concept'

study has developed a technique to distinguish between
two main types of stroke which will enable more effective
and accurate clinical decision-making about treatment.
