Improving stroke patient outcomes and lowering
facility costs

Fast identification of suspected LVOs to
streamline triage and transfer decisions is key

Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Acute Stroke Management

Heart&Stroke

Canadian guidelines for acute stroke management recommend that centres use advanced imaging including CT angiography and CT perfusion to locate large vessel occlusions (LVOs) and the presence of good collateral filling. Advanced cerebrovascular imaging software empowers clinicians to make faster, more accurate diagnostic and treatment decisions for stroke patients.

The importance of proper transfers

Ambulance cost not part of the Canada Health Act

Unnecessary transfers are costly, force your facility to spend limited budget, and can negatively impact patient outcomes. While 80% of Canadians are predicted to have access to hyperacute stroke services within the current guideline’s 4.5 hour treatment window^, advanced cerebrovascular imaging can help clinicians identify patients for endovascular treatment up to 24 hours from known onset.

Using RapidAITM for quick and accurate results can help you:

  • Select patients who would likely benefit from endovascular therapy onsite
  • Avoid costly transfers of patients who are unlikely to benefit from mechanical thrombectomy
  • Avoid extended travel distances for patient families
  • Retain budget for those cases that require costly air ambulance transfer to a mechanical thrombectomy center

Health Technology Assessment findings

“Evidence from this health technology assessment shows that in some patients, treatment with mechanical thrombectomy is also effective up to 24 hours after a stroke when informed by automated CT perfusion imaging. Automated CT perfusion imaging has acceptable sensitivity and specificity for detecting brain areas that have been affected by stroke within 24 hours of symptoms onset. In patients selected for mechanical thrombectomy using automated CT perfusion imaging, there was significant improvement in functional independence.”

Rapid ICH

ICHProductHero

Rapid ICH

Powered by leading-edge AI technology, Rapid ICH quickly triages NCCT cases and automatically notifies clinicians of possible intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in three minutes or less.

Rapid CTA

RapidCTADesktops

Rapid CTA

This technology automatically processes CTA scans and assesses regions of reduced blood flow to identify, locate, and notify stroke teams in the event of an LVO or distal occlusion.

Rapid CTP

RapidCTPDesktops

Rapid CTP

The only clinically validated software with an FDA indication to aid in the selection of patients for acute stroke therapy, Rapid CTP quickly equips physicians with quantified and color-coded CT perfusion maps to enable faster clinical decisions.

Rapid ASPECTS

Rapid ASPECTS

Rapid ASPECTS

The first and only neuroimaging device shown to improve reader diagnosis under the FDA’s CADx classification, Rapid ASPECTS is based on the Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS). It uses validated machine-learning algorithms to automatically identify regions of the brain and generate scores to help physicians quickly assess patient eligibility for thrombectomy.



Rapid Mobile App
