Course description: 

These interactive modules on CT Neuroanatomy, Intracranial Haemorrhage and Basic Ischemic Stroke will focus on identifying key structures within the brain on both computed tomography (CT)and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 3D reconstructions will be used to aid visualisation of certain structures. This curriculum will also look at types of bleeding in the brain and their appearance.The last session will look at indications for imaging stroke, vascular territories; early signs of infarction; late signs of infarction; and, further tests - magnetic resonance imaging and carotid imaging.
