In general, patients who waited longer prior to presentation, more often had uncertain diagnoses and thus, more use of imaging studies, and subsequent longer times to treatment. Others did not find delays associated with CT (Mathis et al.

Time to treatment is divided into two components; patient time, which is the time from symptom onset to presentation to healthcare system and system time which includes time delays between presentation and definitive treatment.
