Understanding Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) Faculty of Medicine - University of Calgary

Alberta Stroke Program Early CT score (ASPECTS) is a 10-point quantitative topographic CT scan score

ASPECTS was developed to offer the reliability and utility of a standard CT examination with a reproducible grading system to assess early ischemic changes on pretreatment CT studies in patients with acute ischemic stroke of the anterior circulation

ASPECTS CT score is simple and reliable

We describe the use of ASPECTS in detecting early ischemic signs on NCCT brain scan
