ASPECTS: Alberta Stroke Programme Early CT Score for Predicting Outcome of Hyperacute Stroke

Predict outcome and risk of hemorrhage in acute ischemic stroke patients eligible for IV thrombolysis

Questions

1.Using the initial non-contrast CT Head, find the axial cut at the level of the thalamus and basal ganglia. Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of the caudate?
2.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of the lentiform nucleus?
3.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of the internal capsule?
4.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of the insular ribbon?
5.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of M1, the anterior MCA cortex on this slice?
6.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of M2, the lateral MCA cortex on this slice?
7.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of M3, the lateral MCA cortex on this slice?
8.Find the axial slice immediately above (rostral to) the slice evaluated above. Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of M4, the anterior MCA cortex on this slice?
9.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of M5, the lateral MCA cortex on this slice?
10.Is there focal edema or parenchymal hypoattenuation of M6, the posterior MCA cortex on this slice?
