Stroke is a serious health issue that affects thousands of Canadians and is the second leading cause of death in the world. Thanks to advances in diagnosis and treatments, survival rates for stroke patients over the past decade have significantly improved. Since the decision to treat stroke is largely influenced on the basis of imaging, this quick self-study will focus on the role of CT in acute stroke. This course will include a discussion on types of stroke, recognizing them on non-enhanced CT, the role of CT angiography and an explanation of CT perfusion. The role of CT perfusion for indications outside of acute stroke will also be explored.
