Creatinine And Consent May Be Waived In An Emergency

[see attached radiology department policy. reminder courtesy of dr. chan, as it pertains to CT brain perfusion studies below]

Dear Colleagues and Residents,

Per Dr. Tuhrim, certain acute ischemic stroke patients may require emergent CT perfusion scans in addition to the non-contrast head CTs. For this particular subset of acute stroke patients, creatinine and written consents are not required before obtaining the CT perfusion scans- please see the attached radiology protocol.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving.
