Abstract

Information obtained from brain imaging is now summarized in the form of various neuroimaging scores to help physicians in making therapeutic decisions and determining prognosis. The Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) was devised to quantify the extent of early ischemic changes in the middle cerebral artery territory on noncontrast computed tomography. With its systematic approach, the score is simple, reliable, and a strong predictor of functional outcome. This review summarizes ASPECTS and other neuroimaging scores developed for risk prognostication and risk stratification with treatment in patients with acute ischemic stroke.
