In brief: New transient change
A new transient neurologic event either on the same side or the contralateral side.
This could be weakness, numbness, or a visual change. The diagnosis of a TIA would require that the symptoms were transient and the subsequent MRI showed nothing new. A cause for the TIA such as carotid disease or atrial fibrillation is also helpful in making the diagnosis.
