They describe diagnostic tools such as CT scans and MRIs, as well as medications used to prevent and treat stroke. These doctors also cover in detail how stroke survivors can heal optimally. Finally, they help survivors reduce the risk of another stroke. Relating patients’ experiences and bringing readers up to date on promising new treatments, Life After Stroke offers hope to stroke survivors and their families.
