Stroke Diagnosis

Time is critical in preventing further damage to your brain and in reversing the damage already done during a stroke. For this reason, you should get to an emergency room as quickly as possible.
After an initial review of your symptoms and medical history, a physical exam will focus on identifying the area of your brain that is being damaged. Your condition will be stabilized.
The diagnosis evaluation includes:

  • Neurological exams
  • Blood and urine tests
  • Imaging scans
