Increasing scores indicate a more severe stroke and has been shown to correlate with the size of the infarction on both CT and MRI evaluation. NIHSS scores when assessed within the first 48 hours following a stroke have been shown to correlate with clinical outcomes at the 3-month and 1-year mark. Patients with a total score of 4 or less generally have favorable clinical outcomes and have a high likelihood of functional independence regardless of treatment. These patients, however, are also the most severely debilitated and dependent from their strokes as well.
