In the past, doctors based their diagnoses of stroke on demographics and risk factors. However, this outdated mindset leads to missed opportunities to treat a stroke before the death of brain tissue or the patient. In fact, experts estimate that 15,000 to 165,000 strokes are misdiagnosed every year and misdiagnosis results in 40,000 to 80,000 preventable deaths per year.
