abstract

  • Old silent microbleeds, visualized with T2*-weighted MRI sequences, may be a marker of increased risk of HT in patients receiving thrombolytic therapy for acute ischemic stroke. Pretreatment screening of thrombolytic candidates with these MRI sequences may be useful in the future to identify these patients.
