Summary of the current state of imaging techniques in stroke diagnosis and assessment. Prospects for further advancements and their potential impact on stroke management and patient outcomes. Imaging techniques have revolutionized the diagnosis and assessment of stroke, enabling rapid and accurate identification of stroke subtypes, evaluating the extent of brain damage, and guiding therapeutic decisions. With ongoing advancements in technology and the integration of artificial intelligence, imaging modalities are poised to play an increasingly vital role in stroke management. By further refining these techniques, researchers and clinicians have the opportunity to enhance stroke care, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately reduce the burden of this devastating condition.
