Stroke is a disease that seriously threatens human health. Acute occlusion or rupture of cerebral blood vessels can cause ischemic stroke or cerebral hemorrhage, resulting in neurological deficits and even death. The purpose of this study was to investigate the value of multimodal CT in predicting and evaluating collateral circulation in patients with ischemic stroke. In this article, multimodal computed tomography (mCTA combined with CTP) was used to evaluate collateral circulation, infarct core, and ischemic peninsula in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS), and to explore the effects of multimodal CT on blood flow, prevalence, and ischemic peninsula. Prognostic implications of AIS patients. According to the mCTA massage compensation score, the patients were divided into a good circulation group and a poor circulation group (4-5 for good circulation, 0-3 for poor collateral circulation). Affect insurance claims. The differences of CTP parameters in the infarct core area (or ischemic crescent area) between the good and bad coronary groups were compared. The differences of CTP parameters between the infarct core area and the mirror area, the ischemic penumbra area and the mirror area, and the infarct core area and the ischemic penumbra area were compared. Experiments have shown that people with higher LDL levels are less likely to obtain good collateral circulation than those with lower LDL levels (OR=0.672), indicating that lower LDL levels predict collateral circulation. Compensation is good.
