The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) and Scandinavian Stroke Scale (SSS) are both validated measures of neurologic impairment and have been used in many acute stroke trials. Methods for interconverting SSS and NIHSS are needed. Conversion equations were developed using linear regression (both unadjusted, and adjusted for age and sex) using a random 50% of the data at both baseline and 90 days. The remaining 50% of data were used to test the accuracy of the models produced.
