A 'revolution in medicine': New technology at CHI St. Alexius helps stroke patients

When Nicholas Bradbury was in medical school 15 years ago, treatment options were limited for stroke patients. When Bradbury went with a neurologist to visit stroke patients, they'd take note of the functions patients lost - such as vision or speech - and then put them on baby aspirin and that was it.

"That was all the treatment you had," said Bradbury, now an interventional radiologist at CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck. Over the past 10 years, treatment for stroke patients has changed drastically. Strokes occur when a clot gets stuck in a person's brain and blocks blood flow, which can cause brain damage, a long-term disability or death.
