Stroke One Day Course: Advanced Stroke Neuroimaging


33 Queen Square (link Map)
Institute of Neurology | Lecture Theatre | London | WC1N 3BG | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

This short course offered by the world leading UCL Institute of Neurology in Queen Square gives an overview of the neuroimaging of stroke and mechanical thrombectomy. This course will outline methods of quantifying the impact of the stroke using advanced imaging techniques– from penumbral and core infarct size through to methods of imaging recovery from stroke. It will also cover the more familiar aspects of imaging stroke such as using CT and MRI based modalities to evaluate infarcts and haemorrhages. There is an introduction to the benefits and applications of mechanical thrombectomy.

Learning Outcomes:

1. To understand advanced imaging techniques used to quantify stroke recovery

2. Describe cerebral neurovascular anatomy

3. Understand how the ischaemic penumbra can be imaged

Examples of lecture topics:

  • Cerebral Anatomy
  • Imaging Stroke Recovery
  • Ischaemic Stroke
  • Haemorrhagic Stroke
  • Introduction to Imaging for Stroke
