This session describes the clinical features of stroke and how and when imaging is used. The different appearances over time on both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are covered, along with important very early signs of infarction on CT. The differential diagnosis of patients presenting with stroke-like symptoms is also considered.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Differentiate between stroke and conditions mimicking stroke
• Differentiate basic ischaemic from haemorrhagic stroke
• Describe early infarct signs on CT
• Describe how to manage patients who don't present to hospital until many days or weeks after the stroke, especially the milder strokes
• Decide when to consider using MRI instead of CT
• Refer to the current clinical guidelines
