Description

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, to differentiate cerebral infarction from haemorrhage, to assess the extent of the stroke/ complications and to rule out any other reason for the acute presentation.

Although this module is based on the On-call exposure to patients presenting 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.

Level
