In acute ischemic stroke, the ability to estimate the penumbra and infarction core ratio helps to triage those who will potentially benefit from thrombolytic therapies. Flat-panel post-contrast DynaCT imaging can provide both vasculature and parenchymal blood volume within the angio room to monitor hemodynamic changes during the endovascular procedures. We report on an 80-year-old woman who suffered from an acute occlusion of the right distal cervical internal carotid artery. She was transferred to the angio room where in-room post-contrast flat-panel DynaCT imaging (syngo Neuro PBV IR) was performed to access the ischemic tissue, followed by successful mechanical thrombolytic therapy.
