  • CT perfusion image representing an acute ischemic stroke

    A CT perfusion image representing an acute ischemic stroke in the right middle cerebral artery region. The first image is the relative mean transit time map, representing a large territory at risk (blue).

  • CT perfusion image representing an acute ischemic stroke

    CT perfusion image representing an acute ischemic stroke in the right middle cerebral artery region. The second image is the relative cerebral blood volume map, showing some areas of completed infarct within the larger territory at risk (dark blue).

Research Overview

  • Dr. Barazangi’s research interests include neuroimaging, neurovascular disorders, and neuromonitoring.
  • As Director of the Stroke/Neurocritical Care Research and Education Program at CPMC, she has increased the center’s participation in stroke clinical trials, spearheaded participation in the Neurologic Emergencies Treatment Trials program, and leveraged the resources of CCSCC’s 25 hospital telestroke network.
  • Dr. Barazangi developed and manages the investigator-initiated PERFUSE (PERFusion Use in Stroke Evaluation) study, focusing on computed tomography techniques such as perfusion imaging, which may improve the selection of patients for acute stroke therapies.
  • She also oversees stroke research training for students, residents and fellows at CPMC.
  • Dr. Barazangi is the Stroke/Neurocritical Care Lead for the Sutter Neuroscience Research Consortium. 

Training

Dr. Barazangi received her M.D. and Ph.D. at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in New York (NY). She completed her Neurology residency and fellowship in Neurocritical Care and Vascular Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco.


Notable Contributions

Dr. Barazangi and colleagues' research was included in a chapter on Teleneurology and Neurointerventional Therapy for Acute Stroke in the book Teleneurology in Practice: A Comprehensive Clinical Guide (2015, eds. Tsao and Demerchaek).

Research News & Highlights

Nobl Barazangi, MD, PhD, and David Tong, MD, published the Multi-SMART study in a May 2016 issue of the Journal of Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases. The SMART (Simplified Management of Acute Stroke using Revised Treatment Criteria) approach is a new method enabling physicians to quickly and efficiently determine which AIS patients will benefit from thrombolytic treatment.
