Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain is commonly used in people with suspected stroke. It help us decide if stroke has occurred and can identify causes of stroke such as disease in the very small arteries in the brain. Additionally, brain scans contain a large amount of information on other aspects of the brain’s size and integrity. This research will assess methods for quantifying these other features and how they affect outcome after stroke. This may provide a framework for recruiting appropriate patients into clinical trials of brain damage in stroke and ultimately lead to better treatment.

Research area: Neurological conditions (including stroke)
