Anatomical Localization of Ischemic Stroke

An ischemic stroke is defined by the abrupt loss of blood flow to a region of the brain, which is followed by an impairment of neurologic function. The thrombotic or embolic occlusion of a cerebral artery causes acute ischemic stroke, which occurs more frequently than hemorrhagic stroke. Stroke assessment is traditionally aided by clinical localization, in which presenting deficits are linked to specific arterial locations in the brain. Although they are essential for delivering evidence-based stroke care, clinical localization skills are rarely taught to non-neurologists. They enable rapid patient identification, diagnosis, and, ultimately, the administration of immediate treatment. Despite advanced neuroimaging and laboratory research, technology cannot replace the clinician's history and examination-based anatomical localisation. Standard imaging tests may overlook lesions unless they are narrowly focused on the anatomical region thought to be affected. Understanding the system's architecture, physiology, blood supply, and the disease processes that influence it are necessary for localization.
