Answer:

Answer:

D) Obtaining a noncontrast CT scan of the head Noncontrast CT of the head is the gold standard in detecting intracranial hemorrhage in acute stroke patients. Any patient presenting with signs of stroke should have a noncontrast CT performed to rule out a bleed prior to being given TPA. The neurosurgical team could be called in for a consult, but not until there is enough information to determine whether a surgical intervention is warranted (i.e. whether the patient has a clot or a bleed). This patient will likely need to be transferred to the ICU, but again, the CT needs to be completed first. If there is no bleed, TPA can be given in the ED prior to transfer to the ICU.
