Stroke is one of the most common indications for brain imaging. This module will help users to gain confidence in giving an accurate differential diagnosis on stroke cases and see multiple stroke cases across different stages.
Stroke is one of the most common indications for brain imaging. Although the diagnosis of acute stroke is mainly clinical, imaging is often required to: rule out a contra indication for thrombolysis; differentiate cerebral infarction from haemorrhage; assess the extent of the stroke/complications; rule out any other reasons for the acute presentation.
Although this module is based on the On-call exposure to patients presented with stroke, it will also show stroke in its different stages. Although many of our cases are plain CT head scans, other techniques may be used when appropriate. We will also show variants which may mimic stroke and when appropriate, give a differential diagnosis for the findings seen on the images.
- To prepare the reporting radiologist to be able to give a confident diagnosis and to supply the appropriate information required for the appropriate management in cases of stroke.
- To keep the radiologist aware of the significant role an acute diagnosis can have on (the) patient management.
- To enforce the importance of communication with the clinician in particular in case urgent intervention is required.
Level II - General radiologist
This module is geared towards senior residents and general radiologists wanting to increase their knowledge in neuroradiology, particularly in the area of stroke.

- * Tested with Safari on iPad 9.7 (2017), should also work on Android with Chrome. User interface not optimized for smaller screens. Large cases (more than 600 images) are not able to be opened on tablet or mobile devices due to memory constraints.
- ** Firefox, Edge and Safari also work but might not provide an equally smooth experience. Internet Explorer is not supported.
