Description

Stroke remains one of the most common indications of brain imaging. Although the initial diagnosis of acute stroke is clinical, imaging has become an integral part of stroke management. It is required to rule out a contra indication for thrombolysis, in particular, to differentiation cerebral infarction form haemorrhage. With the advances in stroke management, imaging is now necessary to delineate the extent of the stroke, its complications and to exclude other conditions which may mimic the presentation of stroke. Imaging has expanded with immediate stroke follow up and where sophisticated endovascular intervention is available.

Building on the success of our Stroke 1 and Stroke 2 modules (4.86/5.00 for 'Would you recommend this module to a colleague?' and 4.76/5.00 for 'How would you rate your training experience?'), we designed these two advanced modules III and module IV.

The cases are more complicated and less common. We also added additional investigations required to reach a final diagnosis. But some cases are hard enough and a differential diagnosis is warranted. Although the module is based on our On-call exposure to patients with a diagnosis of acute stroke, some cases will show the different stages of stroke progression.

The module is designed as an education exercise rather than a test of knowledge. For this reason a reference is added with every case as additional reading material.


Level
