MRI/ Nova scans are a new technique useful for determining the quantitative volume of blood flowing through brain arteries. This information aids physicians in determining if areas of the brain are getting too much or too little flow. It is used during the pre op MRI and at the post op MR outpatient appointments.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
