Relationship between initial imaging modality selection and futile recanalization after thrombectomy

Takeaway

  • Patients selected for mechanical thrombectomy (MT) through computed tomography (CT) had an increased risk of futile recanalization (FR) versus those selected through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Why this matters

    Understanding the role of initial imaging modality in MT outcomes will aid in future treatment decisions and potentially improve patient outcomes.
