The Stroke CT Interpretation Course


  • Imaging with Computed Tomography (CT) has an essential role in the hyperacute stroke pathway. Accurate interpretation of imaging helps to guide further treatment and this is often performed in a time-pressured situation.

  • The aim of the course is to improve imaging interpretation of both non contrast CT head imaging and CT angiographic imaging of the head and neck. Focus on stroke mimics is also provided.

  • This is achieved with a combination of short lectures and review of multiple cases on iMACs with Osirix software.

  • The course is limited to a maximum of 12 attendees per course to improve interactive feedback and case discussion of imaging findings.

  • A total of 6 CPD Category I Points credits are awarded for attendance.

  • Refreshments are provided throughout the day and course lunch is also provided.

  • Preliminary Course Dates; 20th November and 7th December.
