Summary

During the acute stroke phase, physicians are frequently asked by patients and or their family members about their recovery potential and functional outcome at 3 months. It is of critical importance for clinicians to predict motor outcome from the acute phase. Being able to make outcome predictions in the acute phase allows clinicians to triage patients for the most appropriate rehabilitation and provides the patient and the patient’s caregivers with a reasonable expectation of functional recovery. This study aim to predict motor outcomes at 3 months post-stroke using mutliple measures including neuroimaging, genetic and behavioral measures collected during the acute phase.
