Background and Purpose-The risk of stroke shortly after transient ischemic attack with infarction on diffusion-weighted images, also known as transient symptoms with infarction (TSI), is substantially higher than is the risk after imaging-normal transient ischemic attack. We sought to assess the utility of a Web-based recurrence risk estimator (RRE; originally developed for use in patients with ischemic stroke for predicting 7-day risk of stroke in patients with TSI.
