A seminal paper was published in the New England Journal of Medicine describing the results of the ESCAPE trial for endovascular treatment of stroke patients. This study shows that rapid endovascular treatment leads to significantly improved functional outcomes in stroke patients, given appropriate selection criteria. As part of the trial, patients with small infarct core were selected using the ASPECTS method. This shows the continuing importance of reliably assessing plain CT scans to identify patients who can benefit most from appropriate treatments. Brainomix intends to provide standardisation and widespread availability of the CT scan assessment through use of the e-ASPECTS software.
