Dr. Borczuk's main research interests have centered around neurologic emergencies and clinical resource allocation. He has examined indications for ordering cranial CT scans for patients with head trauma, and Dr. Borczuk has developed a 4 element decision rule that can help the practitioner decide which patients with mild head injuries should undergo neuro-imaging. He was involved in a multidisciplinary group of neurologists, emergency physicians and neuro-radiologists, examining the best way to utilize ED CT and MRI scans in patients presenting with acute neurologic complaints (STOPSTROKE study). Dr. Borczuk is about to undertake a study, named TRANCE, to develop a decision rule to help clinicians at community hospitals decide which patients with mild head trauma findings on CT need to be transferred to a level 1 trauma center. Dr. Borczuk also has completed a multicenter trial comparing the use of Labetolol versus Nicardipine in patients presenting with hypertensive emergencies.
