Cerebrovascular imaging software developer iSchemaView has begun shipping its Rapid stroke imaging software in Vietnam.
Rapid helps quantify brain lesions and can extend the window of stroke intervention from six hours after onset to up to 24 hours for patients with salvageable brain tissue, according to the company.
There are 200,000 new stroke cases in Vietnam every year, iSchemaView notes. Hospitals and clinics treating stroke victims in Vietnam will have access to multiple tools in Rapid, including the ability to perform automated measurements for CT perfusion, MRI, CT angiography, and intracranial hemorrhage. Users will also have access to the Rapid mobile app.
