    New Technology Helps Stroke Victims
    Every second counts in getting treatment for a stroke.  Help is on the way via new technology which use computer algorithms to cross-reference a stroke patient’s brain scan with a vast database of scans of other victims.  This allows physicians to give a more precise diagnosis than they have been able to do in the past, and much more quickly.  It can even be done by paramedics in the ambulance using portable brain scanners, enabling doctors to be ready to treat the patient as soon as they
