RAPID technology for stroke emergencies
iSchemaView’s RAPID technology is the world's most advanced visualization software for the brain. The fully automated solution provides specialists with accurate quantitative maps within seconds that show unprecedented accuracy, allowing physicians to rapidly assess the severity of patients’ strokes – and determine the most appropriate treatment based on available collateral circulation.
How RAPID Technology works
RAPID Imaging technology, quickly analyzes the CT and MRI scans of patients having acute strokes to optimize patient selection for transfer and thrombectomy. The software is fast, automated, and results can be viewed on any computer or handheld device by the treating physician on the medical staff. This reduces the “speed to decision” time – generally less than two minutes for actionable results.
Why RAPID Technology saves lives
In evidence-based trials, RAPID imaging technology has given care providers the data needed to make more informed treatment decisions that has often resulted in more accurate care for those with strokes. Minutes matter, and fast delivery of data can enable treatment that may be potentially brainsaving or even life-saving for patients. While currently accepted practices for diagnosis of stroke may take one hour to complete, RAPID software provides automated analysis in less than two minutes.
LifeBridge Health is pleased to utilize RAPID Technology to reduce the time between stroke and treatment to better care for our patients and community.
