Evidence-based medicine has emerged as a valuable tool to guide clinical decision-making, by summarizing the best possible evidence for both diagnostic and treatment strategies. Imaging plays a critical role in the evaluation and treatment of patients with acute ischemic stroke, especially those who are being considered for thrombolytic or endovascular therapy. Time from stroke-symptom onset to treatment is a strong predictor of long-term functional outcome after stroke. Therefore, imaging and treatment decisions must occur rapidly in this setting, while minimizing unnecessary delays in treatment. The aim of this review was to summarize the best available evidence for the diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with acute ischemic stroke.

Objective: This study examined the use of positron emission tomography (PET) ratios to improve the diagnostic ability of 18F-FDG PET/computed tomography (CT) in the differentiation of enhancing brain metastases, central nervous system lymphomas, and gliomas. Materials and methods: Seventy-six patients with malignant brain tumors and available magnetic resonance imaging and PET/CT examinations were included. Results: Among standardized uptake value (SUV)-related parameters tested, tumor maximum SUV to ipsilateral cortex maximum SUV ratio (Tmax:WMimax) and maximum SUV (SUVmax) proved to be the two most valuable parameters for differential diagnosis. Conclusion: In addition to SUVmax, Tmax:WMimax also seems to provide helpful information for the differential diagnosis of lymphomas from other malignant brain tumors. © 2015 Elsevier Inc.
