The field of neurointervention is clearly expanding in new directions. As an example, the treatment of stroke has evolved dramatically since 2014 and continues to do so. This month’s issue also presents several important manuscripts on stroke, including an analysis of mechanical thrombolysis in the setting of advanced age.

Murray and co-authors review the current status of AI in the detection of emergent large vessel occlusion stroke (ELVO). The authors acknowledge the paucity of studies on this subject and describe various machine learning (ML) algorithms commonly used in ELVO detection. What is clear is that comparisons between these algorithms are limited by the diverse standards and input data specific to each technology. While AI platforms represent …
