Fast, consistent identification of large vessel occlusion (LVO) and collateral assessments powered by AI and big data, based on CTA analysis
Craniocervical CT angiography (CTA) is the standard vessel diagnostic tool for patients presenting within the first hours after onset of clinical stroke symptoms. It is quick and readily available making it ideal for an emergency situation.
Part of the
e-CTA is ground-breaking CTA image processing software that uses advanced algorithms, artificial intelligence (AI) and large data analytics to automate the detection of LVO locations and standardize the collateral assessment process. It facilitates faster, better-informed treatment decisions for endovascular treatment. It integrates seamlessly into the clinical pathway for acute stroke treatment, including acquisition and review workstations, hospital communication systems and other DICOM devices.
e-CTA presents results in three different ways
- DICOM output images
- E-mail notifications
- Web browser user interface
Visual reports for faster analysis
The report depicts the affected side, location of any detected LVO, the acquisition phase of the study, and the CTA-CS score supported by a color heat-map representing the difference in collaterals between hemispheres. MIP projections are automatically generated to assist with fast image assessment, with visual indications of vessel peak enhancement time when multi-phase CTA is available.
Your 'always-on' expert
e-CTA is the ideal decision support tool for analyzing clot location and collateral blood flow in acute large vessel occlusion and provides a reliable CTA-CS score to standardize the assessment of collaterals. It assists with the selection of patients in stroke units who may benefit from endovascular treatment and thereby qualify for referral to a comprehensive stroke center.
