Diagnosis and Treatment

Stroke diagnosis and treatment approaches vary depending on factors such as your condition and the type of stroke.

Diagnosis

Imaging tests can detect both heart disease and stroke risk. These include:

  •  Ultrasound
  •  CT scan
  •  MRI

Treatments

Neurocoiling

Neurocoiling is a minimally invasive technique to treat brain aneurysms. During a neurocoiling procedure, a catheter is passed through the groin up into the artery containing the aneurysm. Platinum coils are then released. The coils induce clotting of the aneurysm therefore preventing blood from getting into it.

This minimally invasive procedure is on the forefront of innovative stroke care, and has been a part of Beacon Health System since 2013. With specially trained physicians and state-of-the-art hybrid operating rooms, you can rest assured that you or your loved one is receiving the highest quality of patient-centered care.

tPA

Tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, works by dissolving blood clots and improving blood flow to the part of the brain being deprived of blood flow.
