Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRI uses powerful radio waves and magnets to create a detailed view of your brain. An MRI can detect brain tissue damaged by an ischemic stroke and brain hemorrhages. Your doctor may inject a dye into a blood vessel to view the arteries and veins and highlight blood flow (magnetic resonance angiography, or magnetic resonance venography).

The best post rehabilitation center I have seen in the country is center for Neuro Recovery. My father went there completely enfeeble and in a wheelchair when he started and left walking after nine months of strengthening and functional movement exercises. I have never seen such a state of the art facility and knowledge-based staff. If this was going to happen to another family member again, I know I would go back to this amazing facility.

Medications delivered directly to the brain. Doctors may insert a long, thin tube (catheter) through an artery in your groin and thread it to your brain to deliver tPA directly into the area where the stroke is occurring. This is called intra-arterial thrombolysis. The time window for this treatment is somewhat longer than for intravenous tPA, but is still limited.

Not every warning sign will occur in every stroke. And even if they do go away, these warning signs should not be ignored. A TIA (transient ischemic attack) is sometimes referred to as a mini-stroke, and produces symptoms similar to a stroke that only last for a short time. But TIA symptoms serve as an important warning that a stroke could be imminent, and it’s important to respond the same way to a TIA as you would to stroke symptoms.
