This short course offered by the world leading UCL Institute of Neurology in Queen Square gives an introduction to neuroanatomy, pathophysiology and neuroimaging of stroke. In addition to teaching the cerebral anatomy and the dynamics of blood flow through the cerebral circulation it also teaches the pathophysiology of stroke including cellular mechanisms, formation of atheromatous plaque and thrombus and evolution of intracerebral haemorrhage. The imaging aspect of this module includes methods of quantifying the impact of the stroke – from penumbral and core infarct size through to methods of imaging recovery from stroke.  

Learning Outcomes

1.To understand the unique characteristics of the cerebral circulation (circle of willis, blood brain barrier)

2.List mechanisms of neuroprotection and possible applications of this in the form of treatments

3.Describe changes seen on MRI in the evolution of an infarct, intracerebral haemorrhage

4.Describe the pathophysiology of stroke on a cellular level

5.Evaluate the use of imaging in monitoring stroke recovery

Examples of lecture topics :

  • The Ischaemic Penumbra
  • Cerebral Energy Failure
  • Critical Care and Stroke
  • Imaging the Penumbra
  • Advanced Quantitative Imaging
