The authors of this study aimed to determine the efficacy of a convolutional neural network (CNN) in final infarct volume prediction from computed tomography angiography (CTA), subsequently comparing the results to a CT perfusion (CTP)-based commercially available software. The stroke cases treated with thrombolytic therapy or receiving supportive care were retrospectively selected by the authors. The study found that a CTA-based CNN software can provide good infarct core volume estimates as observed in follow-up imaging studies.

Key points

  • A computed tomography angiography (CTA)-based convolutional neural network (CNN) can predict infarct volume in anterior circulation ischaemic stroke.
  • A CTA-based CNN estimates of ischaemic lesion volumes correlated well with infarct volumes measured from follow-up computed tomography images.
  • Our method had a good correlation with computed tomography perfusion-RAPID estimated infarct core volumes.
