With the symposium “Stroke pathways that clear the way for better outcomes,” Nicolab and Philips discussed the future of stroke treatment at ESOC 2022

With over 4023 attendees (on-site and online) from 107 countries, this year’s European Stroke Organization Conference (ESOC 2022) has been a very positive experience to learn more about new research and progress made in stroke care.

It was the perfect opportunity for Nicolab and Philips to show both companies’ commitment to delivering end-to-end stroke care solutions by hosting “Stroke pathways that clear the way for better outcomes,” a symposium on the future of stroke treatment.

New frontiers in stroke workflow and treatment

Among the four speakers, in particular, Jeremy Hofmeister analyzed the current Workflow and Goals of Stroke Treatment, pointing out how StrokeViewer supports the entire stroke team to be seamlessly connected between hospitals, ensuring service is available 24/7 so that patients can receive the right treatment in time.

Moreover, highlighting the heterogeneity of LVO blood clots due to the complex interplay of their thrombotic and inflammatory components, he described innovative new AI-enabled blood clot visualization, segmentation and quantitative measurement tools, as well as new radiomics tools with the potential to predict which patients might benefit from which type of treatment.
