A new use for magnetic resonance imaging may reduce brain damage from stroke and save lives, according to a study led by a scientist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

A new use for magnetic resonance imaging may reduce brain damage from stroke and save lives, according to a study led by a scientist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Weili Lin, PhD, associate professor of radiology and biomedical engineering at UNC-CH School of Medicine said MR imaging can measure oxygen use in injured brain tissue after a stroke caused by a brain artery blockage. This may help doctors determine whether injured tissue could be saved using the potent clot-busting drug, tissue plasminogen activator (tPA).
