What is it?
There are no screening guidelines for Stroke. There are no tests designed to detect a stroke before you have symptoms. A stroke comes on too quickly. But, there are warning signs and symptoms that can alert you to the need for additional testing to see if you are at higher risk for a stroke. Transient Ischemic Attack (TIAs) are brief episodes where blood flow to a particular area of the brain is halted. This leads to temporary symptoms of a stroke. Since no permanent damage is done, these events may serve as warning signs that tests need to be done.
