An estimated 200 000 to 500 000 people in the United States receive a diagnosis of transient ischemic attack (TIA) each year (1). TIA is as an important warning that a person is at increased short-term risk for stroke, and early recognition and rapid treatment may significantly reduce this risk. Assessment of a patient with suspected TIA is challenging because the physical examination is often normal, and there are no easy methods to confirm the diagnosis at the bedside. However, the recent development of clinical risk scores and an increasing amount of data on the prognostic value of early magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) now provide an evidence-based foundation for clinical decision making in TIA.
