Purva Medical Trust
Purva Medical Foundation is a non-profit organization registered with the Charity Commissioner, State of Maharashtra, India. The foundation was created to understand research, educate and inform the common man about paediatric strokes, a condition in which blood supply to a part of the brain is jeopardized. This is a fairly unknown ailment in children where an incidence rate of up to 8 per 1,00,000 cases per year is reported. Thanks to the increasing sensitivity and specificity of non-invasive imaging methods such as CT, MRI, MRIA and Cranial ultrasound, early diagnosis is possible.
