© 2017 Elsevier B.V. Objectives Door-Needle-times (DNT) of 20 min are feasible when Computer Tomography (CT) is used for first-line brain-imaging to assess stroke-patients’ eligibility for intravenous-tissue-Plasminogen-Activator (iv-tPA), but the more time-consuming Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)-based-evaluation is superior in detecting acute ischaemia.
