degree of narrowing of the blood vessel. Not to mention, the patient is exposed to ionizing radiation and there is a chance of stroke during the procedure itself. 

NOVA MRA can be expanded to use in triage for patients with stroke symptoms.  Since it provides a quick, quantitative result, Berlet said he would like this technology used to give clinicians an even better idea of which stroke patients can be helped with intervention [clot retrieval, angioplasty, stent stroke treatment] when they arrive at the ER with stroke symptoms.

"This technology is a breakthrough for treating stroke patients – we can use it to help prevent stroke in diabetics, hypertensive patients, obese patients and patients who smoke," Berlet said.  "If you can show a diabetic their cerebral vasculature and show them where they could be in two, three or four years if they don't turn it around…that's life-saving preventative care.  If patients use this information and follow our recommendations, they can help to lessen their risk for stroke."

"Stroke is the third leading cause of death," he continued.  "We now have the best technology to tell you how close you are to having a fatal stroke.  Wouldn't you want to know your risk?"
