The Impact of Technology on Stroke Care

When asked about his experience with platform since Vista Radiology’s rollout of the technology in 2019, Dr. Robert Hixson shared:

“With technology, I can be at dinner reviewing a patient’s acute stroke scan on my mobile phone. The application saves critical minutes resulting in faster diagnosis and subsequent treatment. Many times, I am the one calling the team before they know the results of the scan to alert them of a problem I can potentially fix since I was notified by the app.  The ability to be proactive in the treatment of stroke patients is a game changer.”
