Stories About Surviving Stroke from 90.3 WCPN ideastream
What is a stroke? What actually happens in your brain? What are the typical symptoms and why does your body react these ways? Why is it so important that someone suffering from a stroke get immediate treatment? How do doctors diagnose the problem and what are the common treatments? What do these treatments do to your brain/body and why do they work?
Dramatic improvements have been made in the imaging technologies that allow doctors to look into the brain to diagnose a stroke, determine the best treatment protocols and, in some cases, actually administer or perform those treatments. This report examines the technological advancements in imaging and how it's helping more and more patients survive a stroke.
