Abstract

Background and Objectives: Recent studies have used automated perfusion imaging software to identify adults most likely to benefit from reperfusion therapies in extended time windows. The time course of penumbral evolution in childhood arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) is poorly characterised. We investigated the utility of automated perfusion imaging software in childhood AIS and explored the relationship between time to imaging and perfusion-diffusion mismatch. Methods: Convenience population of children with acute AIS, presenting to the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne from 2005-2014, where diffusion and dynamic susceptibility cont..
