Research

Manal’s research focuses on stroke patients who received thrombolysis therapy on admission to Ninewells hospital, and investigates factors that affect patient outcome, including the ischemic changes found on early CT scans in relation to treatment and outcome of the patients. Manal’s studies focus on trying to identify the group of patients that will benefit from thrombolytic therapy and identify the patients with potentially salvageable brain ”PNEUMBRA “ using simple available and non-expensive methods .
